Membership Transfer: First reading for Brett Allen Young from the North Valley SDA Church to the Buena Vista SDA church in Buena Vista VA. ____________________________________________________________ The Social Committee is planning a game night and bake sale on March 24th. Bring your favorite game, or just come out and join in on someone else’s. The bake sale will be raising funds for future social committee events in 2013. Mark your calendars and plan to come. ____________________________________________________________ Small Group Fellowship. If you are not currently involved with a small group of believers for Bible study, prayer, and community, then consider joining one. Or better yet, start a new one. Currently there are two small groups meeting from North Valley. The Ewalds host a group in their home on the 2nd and 4th Sabbaths after church. The Pates host a group in their home on Friday evenings. Call the Ewalds or Pates for more information. ____________________________________________________________ The Three Angels Chorale will be doing a special concert for us here at North Valley today at 4:00pm. Come out and be blessed by this talented group from Hartland. Bring a friend ____________________________________________________________ The time has come for VBS planning already! The VBS team is already working on stories, crafts, games, and food ideas. If you would like to be a part of this group please contact Summer or Edith. We are in need of volunteers in most all areas. Also, if you would like to contribute in a financial way just mark your tithe envelope with your donation “VBS”. ____________________________________________________________ Bulletin information notice! Please submit all bulletin information to Summer Pate no later than 10pm on Wednesday. Information not sent by this time will unfortunately be too late for printing ____________________________________________________________ Today’s offering goes to the Adventist World Budget, specifically radio ministries. They offer broadcasts in 72 countries where often missionaries are not allowed. What an awesome way to evangelize countries with strong government restrictions, cultural opposition and illiteracy. ____________________________________________________________ Thought for the Week:
