Snow Removal Helpers Needed

Sun. & Wed. when there is snow
Join the team! We have teams of two people who commit to one month to clear all sidewalks on our church property. At this time, two people are needed for February and two for March. Please write “snow removal” on your ConnectCard.



Exploring Connection

Tue. 2/27, 6:30-8 p.m., Fellowship Hall
Belonging. Community. Connection. Is it even possible? Finding a supportive group of friends sounds terrific. But it’s not always that simple, is it? Different schedules, not enough groups, and other roadblocks keep us from actually getting connected. You are invited to an Exploring Connections event on Tuesday, February 27 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. Enjoy dessert and an energizing time of learning more about Explore Groups — a simple, nonthreatening way to “test drive” a group, with people you already know or that are already coming to Berean but just aren’t connected yet. There will be opportunities for mixed groups as well as all men or all women groups. To help with our planning, please fill out a Connect Card (in the pocket in front of you) and drop it in a wooden box at the back of the auditorium to sign up. Are you ready to grow as a believer? Take a step of faith and join us for 90 minutes that could open the door to a whole new way to grow closer to Jesus!



IF:Tables

Feb. 16, 17, 18
All women over 18. A great way to go deeper and get to know fellow women in the church. Contact Mary Vogt on FB or sign up in the foyer on the 11th.
