African Children's Choir
Sunday, March 15, 2015 at 8:45am and 11:11am
Come and hear the African Children’s Choir on Sunday, March 15th at either one of our normal worship services. The African Children’s Choir melts the hearts of audiences with their charming smiles, beautiful voices and lively African songs and dance! The Choir is made up of some of the neediest and most vulnerable children in Africa. Many have lost one or both parents, but they have not given up hope and have come to show the beauty, dignity and potential of each African child! The African Children’s Choir has been working with Africa’s most vulnerable children for the past 30 years. The Choir’s mission is to raise awareness of the plight of Africa’s orphaned and abandoned children.

The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life
Information and Organization Meeting on Tuesday, February 10th at 6:00pm
Are you tired of being tired? Have you lost weight over and over but eventually gain it all back (and then some)? I am and I have! Why do we go to God for everything else in our lives but think we have to do the healthy living on our own? Well, this is an approach that Rick Warren, Pastor of Saddleback Church and author of “Purpose Driven Life” put together for himself and his congregation.
The Daniel Plan shows you how the powerful combination of faith, fitness, food, focus, and friends will change your health forever, transforming you in the most head-turning way imaginably—from the inside out.
Here’s the secret sauce: The Daniel Plan is designed to be done in a supportive community relying on God’s instruction for living. Would you like to join me? I’d love to have your help and I’d love to help you. Contact Lynn Smith at email@example.com or 704-517-1923. We can find out the best time and way to support one another.
