Jesus calls out our selfishness through a parable about compassion. 



Sunday morning will be Zoom only: Sunday school will be at 9:30, and there will be a "fellowship break" at 10:30. Worship will be at 10:45. The meeting will be "open" from 9:15a-12:15p.


Due to the uncertainty of Covid-19 infections, the Nebraska MCC sale board has decided to have an online auction on March 27, 2021. Please check the newly updated website: to register donated craft items and quilts auction items  for the on-line sale by March 1.  Here's a new info sheet. There are also great reusable bags at the church for sale ($10) to support the sale (a photo's attached).


Our tech rotation is coming together... thanks to those who've volunteered, and we'd appreciate a few more folks if you're interested.


The 2021 theme verse is Joshua 1:9

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”


We have a sharing fund to assist our members as well as those more loosely connected w/ us who are struggling with financial hardship. Please speak with someone on the nurture commission: Steve, Julie, and/or Ron.


The shop will be "open" for shop hours on Thursdays. We are meeting virtually on Zoom. Stop by to chat if you'd like.


Please continue to be extra intentional in connecting. Physical distance is not equal to social isolation. Let's love our neighbors around the area and world. 


CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUEST - Pray for the staff of Swan Lake Christian Camp (SD) and Crooked Creek Christian Camp (IA) as they begin to prepare for the summer camping season.
