NEW CHURCH DIRECTORIES are now ready and available for pick up at the table in the back of church! Please take 1 per household.

THE DORDT COLLEGE CONCERT CHOIR from Sioux Center, Iowa, invites you to a concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 11, at Cloverdale United Reformed Church (3580 North Cloverdale Road in Boise). The concert is part of a spring music tour with performances in South Dakota, Montana, Washington, British Columbia, Idaho, Colorado, and Iowa. Directed by Dr. Benjamin Kornelis, the ensembles will perform a wide variety of choral music, ranging from music of the Renaissance and Baroque to recently composed works, as well as folk songs and hymn arrangements. The concert is free, with a freewill offering received to help defray tour expenses.

SAFE PLACE MINISTRIES: Safe Place would like to invite you to their annual benefit dinner on Friday, March 4th at 6PM. Safe Place provides counseling, support and services to women whose lives have been touched by abuse so they can begin to heal and grow. Cloverdale URC has purchased a table for 8 at the event so let’s fill it up and come alongside this ministry. Those interested in attending or for more information, please contact Lisa Byce (861-1975) or Joanie Arendse (871-2749).

DINEER FOR DORDT STUDENTS: We need to feed the Dordt choir at our church on Friday, March 11 before their concert. If you can help with this large task, please sign up on the sheet provided on the table at the back of church. See Deb de Jong if you have any questions.

HOUSING FOR DORDT STUDENTS: We need to find housing for about 60 members of the Dordt choir from Friday, March 11 after their concert until Saturday morning. They will need a place to sleep Friday night and then breakfast and a ride back to the church Saturday morning. If you would be willing to host several of these students, please sign up with Lori Den Hartog.

MERIDIAN BIBLE STUDY will meet next on Thursday, March 17 at 7:30PM at the home of John & Judy to study Heroes of Faith Lesson 5, and again on March 31 to study Lesson 6.

MERGE: Our next meeting is this Wednesday, March 2. We will be discussing Chapter 6 of Kevin DeYoung’s Just Do Something. We will discuss Chapter 7 on March 16. Mark your calendars and plan to join us! Any young adults are welcome! See Deb de Jong for details.
YOUTH GROUP will meet next week at 4:30PM. We will discuss chapter 11, and the de Jong family will provide snacks.

*Pray for Al & Marita Noyes as Al battles cancer and begins treatments.

*Dave Howerzyl is in his last week of radiation, so pray that upcoming tests will reveal these treatments have been a success in wiping out all signs of cancer.
