40 Day Devotional - You are invited to join us as we embark on a 40 Day Feast. The 40 Day Feast is a 40 day devotional style book by Wendy Speak (see image below).
The 40 day Feast invites you to:
- Learn how to ingest/digest Bible passages for yourself
- Discover the transforming power bound up in your Bible.
- Apply its truths to your daily life
- Awaken a deep hunger for more of God and less of the things that don't satisfy.

There is a private Facebook group that you are able to join as well that follows along with the book daily, but it isn't required. The group is starting the 40 day Feast on Monday, April 1st. Contact Suanne Whitfield at suannewhitfield@hotmail.com for more information or to sign up.

If the skies are going to be clear we invite you to join us here at the church building any time after 1pm to watch it together. We'll do a quick eclipse primer (with some cool pictures on the video screen) before heading outside. Bring eclipse glasses if you have them. We will be building a cardboard box viewer and testing it out as we await the big event.

If the skies are cloudy we won't have anything happening here at the building (and I will be frantically driving East or West to try to get to a place where I can see it. After seeing one in 2017, I'm an eclipse fanatic now)

If you have any questions contact Noel for details and pray for clear skies!
