BREEZE—PHOTOS & INFO Update
As our church family grows the need for up-to-date information is critical to ensuring good communication and building community. Breeze, our church management system, helps us with that. It serves as our online database and member directory. You can access the contact information for one another, as well as all of the details and information about our events, once you set up an account. Included in your profile is space for a photo of you and a family photo. It is a tremendous help to have a photo of you included in your profile not only for staff but also for our ministry leaders and childcare workers. Please take the time to upload your own photos into the system or meet Angela after the service this Sunday to have a picture taken.

This month KidLevel will now begin at 10:30am in the education building for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Please check your children in in the education building prior to coming into the worship service if they attend KidLevel. Children will no longer spend the beginning part of the service in the sanctuary. Instead they will be worshipping, singing songs, praying and collecting offering in the KidLevel rooms. The only exception to this is the first Sunday of the month—elementary aged children remain in the worship service for the entire time for Family Worship Sunday.
Children in pre-school and younger will remain in their Sunday School rooms for the 9:30 and 10:30 hours.
NEXT LEVEL COFFEE
This Sunday, February 24, join our pastors and staff for coffee and snacks while you hear about the vision of our church and learn about our programs and ministries. Ask questions and find ways for you to engage and get connected at Green Level. The class is for our guests and those contemplating membership. Meet at 9:30am in the administration building conference room. Childcare is provided. Please RSVP to Angela if you will attend.
We believe God wants us to grow in Him and that - through His spirit - He uses three primary ways to accomplish that: His Ear (Prayer), His Voice (Bible) and His Body (Church). Thus, we invite you to join us as we seek to grow as part of God's Body, hearing His voice and calling to His ear. Last Sunday, Pastor David released a weekly prayer guide and Bible reading plans for the month of February. To stay encouraged and involved, you may also sign up online for reminders and emails to keep you on track. Visit www.greenlevel.com/grow for all of the resources and to subscribe.
On Tuesday, February 26, Woven will host its regular monthly meeting at 9:30am on the third floor of the church building. There is one Saturday and one Tuesday morning meeting each month along with playdates for kids of all ages and Mom’s Night Out events. Moms of all ages and stages are invited.
