Praise Ensemble. We are starting a praise ensemble this year! This group will be singing and playing various styles of worship music. The Praise Ensemble will sing/play twice a month. If you would like to play or sing in this non-auditioned group, please attend the interest meeting at Noon on Sunday, January 20. If you have any questions, please contact Vanessa.
Bible study with Pastor Nick. A bible study on the book of Zechariah began this month. We meet in the Fellowship Room each Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. See you there!
Superbowl briskets. The Men's Group will be smoking briskets for Super Bowl weekend again this year. Proceeds from the sale of these delicious marvels will be split between support of the Fishes and Loaves Food Pantry at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Irving and a Men's Group project to provide seating for the pavilion. You can sign up for brisket at the Fellowship kiosk. It will be sold by the pound ($20/pound) or $100 for a complete brisket (approximately 6-7 pounds cooked weight).
