Dear Floris Family,

Over the past several months I have been working on a study for Lent that I hope will be a real blessing to you. 6 Decisions That Will Change Your Lifeshares key insights that will allow you to better discern God’s will for your life. This experience will be great for anyone who has ever wanted to know how to allow God to better guide their decisions and life. I have been working with Charlie Kendall and Justin Lucas to produce a video based curriculum that small groups at Floris will share together. This study has four components: a participant’s journal that will provide five readings and reflection questions for personal devotions each week; a leader’s guide for small group sessions; a weekly video with an interview of a person whose life was changed when they realized God was speaking to them personally; weekly sermons that will focus on the themes and scriptures included in the participant’s journal. Bound participant journals will be available for sale and an online version will be available sometime next week. There are many new small groups starting during Lent and I encourage you to participate. Sign-ups begin this Sunday in the Gathering Space and online. The series begins February 10. Contact Bill Graywith questions.

Care and Concern Fair
Floris’ Care and Concern ministry will be hosting a fair this Sunday from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM and after the 5 PM service in the Gathering Space. You will want to stop by to see all of the support groups at Floris. I encourage you to participate so that you will know what is offered in our church for yourself, your family or your friends. You will also be able to sign up to be a part of our caring community by providing meals or helping in other ways. Contact Jeanette Debernardi with questions.

Parking Shuttle Update
We will not have parking shuttles this Sunday. We will have them on Super Bowl Sunday, February 3, since we may have larger attendance at the morning services. For those of you who prefer the 5 PM service, we will keep the service to an hour so that you can be home to watch the game.

This Week in Worship
Join us Sunday as we continue with our sermon series, Sustaining Relationships. We will consider divorce and remarriage this week. Divorce is one of the most painful conclusions to a marital relationship that we can endure. I will talk about issues related to divorce, share scripture that can guide us and deal with questions about divorce and remarriage. Scripture: Matthew 19:1-10.

In Christ,
– Tom
