”Who’s Your One?” There are Post-It Notes available in the Narthex on the Welcome Center and on the round tables. Take one and write on it the name of one person you’d like to see come to church. Then put it in the back of your Bible with the end sticking out as a reminder to pray for that person.

Check out the praise board in the narthex near the BYKOTA classroom. If you have a testimony or praise that you would like to share with the church family, write it on the card and post it. This can often be an encouragement to someone who needs it.

One in the Spirit

I recently attended the Midwest Leadership Conference held in Springfield, Illinois, on January 21st through the 23rd. I didn’t want to go. Scott Kallem made me.
