Sunday Mornings with Us . . .

• We will have some of the best homemade chili you can imagine. • Bob Dusin and friends always bring the laughs. • Todd Lamanske will bring a walkaround sleight-of-hand style magic you won’t believe. Anyone can bring a pot of your favorite chili for others to enjoy and if you want your chili to be a part of the “Cookoff” bring it by 5:30 p.m. to the kitchen. We begin eating at 6 p.m. We encourage you to bring your family and friends to this event, even if they don’t attend 2BC! Invite them today! If you plan to bring chili, please help us by contacting the church office at 781-2824 or email Maggie at mhenderson@2bcliberty.org.


potato bar and pie auction: ReCAP! On Sunday, February 2, over 200 people stayed after worship for the 3rd Baked Potato/Salad Lunch and Pie Auction to support the Student Choir’s upcoming trip to the YouthCue Festival at Baylor University in Waco, TX. After the buffet lunch and fellowship around the tables, auctioneer and church member, Jeff Cates, whipped the crowd into a frenzy as he auctioned 10 pies that had been prepared and donated by church members. Pies were auctioned for $150 to an amazing $1,100, with many wisecracks and light-hearted jabs flying about the room. The 10 pies raised $5,700. After the auction, 5 more pies were raffled. bringing the total raised for the day to over $6,000. The YouthCue festival costs each student more than $400 each, but with the proceeds from the auction, that amount will be reduced to $200. The Music Ministry, the participating students, and their parents want to thank the congregation for their enthusiastic support!

Middle School Retreat March 7-8 I don’t know about you, but my Middle School years were pretty rough. It felt like I was living on the serengheti and I was just trying to be the antelope that gets away! And I know lots of folks who would never, ever want to relive their early teenage years. Now that I work in youth ministry I find myself wondering, “Do our Middle School years have to be this hard?” In early March, the Middle School students from Second Baptist will be going on a one-night retreat to Miracle Hills Ranch near Bethany, MO. We’ll be spending time playing Capture the Flag, paintball, and lots of board games! But we’ll also be having some intentional conversations about identity. We’re going to focus on three questions: 1. Who am I? 2. Who are you? 3. Where does God fit into all of this? As we flesh out these questions together we’ll focus on the surprising places we might find our identity. Maybe our identity is not found in what other people think of us, but instead by realizing that the Creator of the Universe is continually giving us grace, hope, and love. For more information or to register a Middle School student contact Associate Pastor, Tyler Tankersley (ttankersley@2bcliberty.org). 2

Stephen Ministry Unconditional.

It is hard to find anything that is unconditional. Everything seems to have strings attached to it. Yet God’s love is unconditional—we don’t have to earn it or achieve anything to receive it.

At times, however, we can feel quite removed from God’s unconditional love. We can feel guilty, undeserving, or downright “unlovable.” At those times, Stephen Ministers can help. They are trained to listen and care in a non-judgmental way, focusing on letting Christ’s unconditional love flow through them and into the life of the care receiver.
