--On February 2, we will learn about Jochebed, Moses’ mother, and Zipporah, Moses’ wife whose stories are found in Exodus, chapters 1-18.
--On February 9, we will study the story of Rahab who helped two spies sent to the city of Jericho by Joshua. Her story is found in Joshua, chapters 2-6. In addition, we will learn about Deborah, one of the judges of Israel. Her story is found in Judges, chapters 4-5.
--Finally, on February 16 we will learn about Bathsheba, one of King David’s wives. The sources we will use are 2 Samuel, chapters 11-12; 1 Kings, chapters 1-2 and 1 Chronicles, chapter 3.

THE LAST DAY TO ORDER MERU APPAREL IS TOMORROW!
Show your support for our partnership with the Diocese of Meru by purchasing logo apparel through an online store operated locally by Burghardt Sporting Goods. Orders will be completed and shipped by late February and can either be shipped to your home for $15, or if you place your order with Andy Toth, he’ll pick them up at the March partnership committee meeting and bring them to church and save you the shipping charge. The link to the website is: https://bsg.chipply.com/GMS On the store link you can select from t-shirts, polo shirts, button-down sport shirts, sweatshirts, hooded sweatshirts, and various styles of fleece jackets, in men’s and women’s styles.
