Easter Morning Program - The Prairie Choristers and Youth Choir are planning to present a program on Easter morning. The Prairie Choristers will be at about half of their normal numbers, so, if you have been thinking about singing with them, now would be a good time to start. Practices will begin next Wednesday, the 21st. For more information, see Bro. Phil Hodel or email him at plhodel@gmail.com

Small Group Bible Study - We are planning our next small group Bible Study on “Prayer”. Since this is a 12 week study we are going to get started a little early so as not to get too far into spring. Prayer is to the spiritual life what breathing is to the physical life. “Pray without ceasing”, "Brethren, pray for us”, “Watch and Pray”. Prayer is mentioned over 400 times in the Bible. Let us together search this wonderful and incredible gift God has provided for us. Prayer is our lifeline to God. Signup sheets are in the North hall or you can email Bro. Jeremy Knepp at jrknepp@frontier.com with your preferred times to meet.

Loving Shepherd Ministries - The Roanoke church currently provides 80% of the monthly operating costs for Fond Frede Home of Hope family consisting of 12 adopted orphans through LSM.  If you would like more information on this program and the Roanoke church's role, please pick up an informational sheet on the tables in the north hall or contact Bro. Drew or Sis. Amanda Leman (leman.amanda@gmail.com).

Winter World Relief Project - A group from Princeville & Bradford is planning to take a bus to Arkansas the 2nd week in February to help out with the winter World Relief project.  There is extra room on the bus and they would like for you to go with them.  Anyone interested should contact Bro. Jim Braker for further details.
