Dear Faith Family, 

I read an article recently depicting the month of March as a month of memories.  March is the in-between month when we shake off the cold winds of winter and wait to see the first warm signs of spring.  We look with anticipation toward Easter resurrection, and approaching new growth of life within ourselves as well as new life in our surroundings. 

Spring is a time for cleaning—getting rid of the old things in our lives.  We have been doing a lot of that around our home as we get rid of the things we do not need that make clutter.  I have been looking through albums and albums of pictures, reminiscing of days gone by and remembering those that are no longer with us. 

I have been thanking God for His precious gift of memory and I am so thankful for those spiritual markers in my life—for my mom leading me to Christ as a young teenager, for so many faithful friends throughout the years that have been spiritual leaders, and for those that continue to help me grow as a Jesus follower. 

In this season of my life, I am thankful for each of you and for your continual words of encouragement as we co-labor together, sharing the Gospel message and God’s love with those around us.   

My prayer for each of you is that you might also revisit and relive the memorable days of your past, the times God has purposely imprinted upon your heart and mind to keep your faith and hope alive and strong.  Most importantly, I pray we will all be thanking God for all He is doing in each of our lives and for how He is at work at First Hewitt. 

“Being confident of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 1:6 

Be Blessed, 

Susan Malone 
Minister of Adults 55+ 

Do you have a dirty car? Have you not washed it all winter? Well, it’s now Spring which means it’s time to get it washed. The students will be hosting a car wash here at the church to help raise money for camp. The car wash will take place tomorrow, March 25 from 10am-2pm. Please take the time to come by and support our students!

Join us for a church-wide fellowship on Sunday, March 26 @ 5 PM in the HUB.  We encourage you to bring your "Brown Bag" dinner for you and your family. Come enjoy a time of fellowship before we prayer walk our neighborhoods and deliver door hangers for Easter. Parents, pull out the stroller or wagon for the kids.

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering
The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (AAEO) is the primary way Southern Baptists fund missions in North America. One hundred percent of gifts given to AAEO go to the field to support more than 2,400 missionary families serving across the United States and Canada.

Gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering are used to train and resource missionaries in church planting and compassion ministries. Gifts are also used to create evangelism resources. New churches are being planted, hurts are being healed and lives are being transformed by the gospel because you give.
