Marriage Moment
Brian Collis
February 2016

A new year, a clean slate... as a follow up to last month’s moment, here’s a "greatest hits" list of ways to invest in your marriage in the new year. (with a new one or two) Just like supporting the church, you can give of your:


> Pray together. More than just at mealtimes, make a serious effort regularly go before God together with humility and gratitude. Be transparent, honest and vulnerable. Do a marriage devotional together. There are tons of resources out there for couples who want to reconnect and foster deeper, stronger intimacy - in all it's forms.

Schedule regular date nights. Put them on your calendar, and declare them non-negotiable. Declare them sacred! Make a plan that works for you both, and share responsibility for specifics. Take turns planning; arranging sitters for the kids, choosing a place, etc. How often? Monthly? Weekly? Up to you! Choose a timeframe that you will be able to maintain.

Pastor's Pen
February 2016
by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,

Wow! It’s hard to believe that Christmas and New Years are just behind us, and we are already not far off from Lent! The Church season of Lent, a time of spiritual preparation for the celebration of Jesus’ passion, death, and resurrection, comes earlier than usual this year. Ash Wednesday is February 10th and the first Sunday of Lent is February 14th! As such we be beginning a Lenten sermon series and church wide-study on the great “I AM” statements of Jesus in the Gospel of John. We will be using a resource for individual and small group study by Reverend Rob Fuquay entitled “The God We Can Know: Exploring the ‘I AM’ Sayings of Jesus.” In the weeks before February 14th you will be invited to pick up a copy of this book and sign up for a small group to journey along together.

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”
― C.S. Lewis

And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments." Luke 23:34

Many people this at this time of year are trying their best to express love to those around them. The do all kinds of typically romantic things like giving gifts, watching romantic comedies together, going to fancy dinners and making mix tapes (hello 1980s!) But one thing is essential to prove that you love someone.
