MISSION OUTPOST As we consider how to use our gifts to meet the needs of the Santa Fe community, we are looking for opportunities to serve. A mission outpost, as highlighted in our preliminary strategic plan, is a center from which mission work is carried out. Do you know of a project or group in the community who could use some help? We are looking for ways to give our time, not just collect donations. Contact Pastor Corinne or bring your ideas to our strategic plan kickoff next Sunday.  To learn more about the Mission Outpost Model for Church, check out this 2-minute video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/ORGKjU4-FCU.

Share with us your thoughts and ideas Sunday, January 27 from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We will focus on what we want to keep: things we want to repeat, the positives we can see doing in the future; what we want to stop: what happened that we want to make sure does not happen again, what actions took away from what we were doing during the service; and what we want to start: what we miss doing that could have made the services better or what we should add to the experiences in the future to take them to the next level.

BIBLE STUDY While we are looking for a new venue, our weekly bible study is on break. Starting March 7, we will be offering SOUP & SCRIPTURE Thursday nights throughout Lent, starting at 6 p.m. at church. More details to follow.
