VALENTINE’S DINNER The Valentine’s Dinner is just a few weeks on Feb. 12 from 4-6 pm. We will be having pork tenderloin, cheesy potatoes, green beans, dinner and fruit salads and dessert. We will have dinner music and there will be special entertainment for all to enjoy. The price again this year will be singles $5 and couples $10. Many people under 55 wanted to come last year so the dinner is for anyone 18 and up but it is still limited to 80 people. You are welcome to bring friends and family but don’t wait to get your tickets because they will go fast! Judy Lane will be selling tickets in the narthex after church or you can stop buy the church office during the week to get your tickets.

ONE MAN’S STAND AGAINST EVIL EXPLORED AT LIFETREE CAFÉ
The existence and causes of evil will be explored at Lifetree Café on Thursday, Feb. 2 at 12:30 p.m. at the Candlewood Pool House. The program, titled “Confronting Evil: One Man Takes a Stand,” features a filmed interview with Peter Ash, founder of Under the Same Sun, an organization dedicated to helping people with the genetic condition of albinism overcome often deadly discrimination. “People with albinism who live in cultures where the dominant skin tone is much darker obviously stand out more,” Ash says. “We notice that discrimination and stigma are more severe in these cultures.” During the program participants will also have the opportunity to discuss places they’ve seen evil in their own world and what they’ve done about it. This Lifetree Café Program may not be appropriate for younger viewers.
