2/14 Valentine lunch & MAPS kids dessert party! All are invited to come to a provided lunch at 12:30 p.m. Please RSVP on the signup sheet for attendance and a valentine treat you would be willing to bring for dessert. The MAPS kids have used the Sunday closest to Valentines as an opportunity to honor and get to know other ministries or groups of people in our church. If you are up to it, one of the other traditions is musical chairs. Due to other scheduling we are hopeful that the afternoon would allow more to participate than the evening; please signup if YOU can be there!
