Between Sundays - February 8

A Note From Jason

Thanks to everyone who has been so involved in our Shine emphasis up to this point! I've loved hearing about all the ways that you are intentionally shining the light of Christ among each other and then into our community. Don't forget that we have our final Shine Session tonight as we seek to better connect you with our local and global ministry partners.

Also, we are hosting a reception in Connection Point between and after our worship gatherings this Sunday. If you are fairly new to our church and I've not had a chance to meet you, I would love for you to stop by! It's casual and you can stay as long as you want. I hope to connect with several of you there!

News & Announcements

Last Shine Session Tonight!
Don't miss out on our final Shine Session tonight as we look at the importance of shining the light of Jesus in our world, and how you can be a part of that mission at Shoreline. Dinner will be available at 6:00 PM, and we will begin promptly at 6:30 PM. We'd encourage you to make every effort to attend! Childcare is also available. Sign up at shorelineknox.com/shine.

Spring Short-Term Studies
We have a new slate of short-term studies coming up quickly, with the first one beginning tomorrow! These studies are a great way to strengthen your faith, to connect with other believers, and to grow in your relationship with Christ. Don't miss out! All studies and registration can be found at shorelineknox.com/shorttermstudies.

Baptism Sunday
Baptism is a powerful demonstration of what Jesus has done in the life of a believer, and is our way of communicating to the world our changed life. Or next Baptism Sunday will be on Sunday, February 26. If you would like to take this next step of faith, or would just like to learn more, let us know here.

Shoreline 101
At a Shoreline 101 class, you’ll learn all about our history, mission, vision, doctrine, and commitments. You'll learn if partnership is for you, and you’ll meet a few new people and briefly share your story. The next opportunity will be held the next two Sundays, February 12 and 19 during the 10:45 gathering in Room 201. Let us know you're coming here!

Nicaragua Mission Trip
Feeling the call to serve and share God's Kingdom? Shoreline will be taking a team to Nicaragua with Partners in Christ from June 24 - July 1. The vision for this trip is to share God's grace and bring our brothers and sisters to Christ. We will also focus on other sustainability projects with our local church partner including a working well, a feeding program, playground equipment, and beautification of the grounds all with the intent of bringing more people to the church and ultimately to knowing Christ as their savior.

If you are interested in learning more, connect with Landon Shewmake at landonshewmake@hotmail.com. There will also be an informational meeting on February 26 after the 10:45 gathering in Room 200.
