Did you know… today was National Proofreading Day! From timeanddate.com:
March 8 is Proofreading Day. The day promotes error-free communication and encourages everyone to spend some time updating and expanding his or her proofreading skills.
Fun Fact: Our Communications Director usually does her best proofreading right after she sends an all-church email. 😉
Here’s what’s coming…
Justine Alexander’s Baby Shower (Saturday, March 11th, 10am – 12pm) – ALL sisters are invited to a baby shower to celebrate the homecoming of Hannah Alexander, daughter of Justine and Jason Alexander! Click HERE to view the invitation. Justine is registered at Target and Babies R Us.
Last Nights of the King: 2017 Women’s Day (Saturday, March 18th, 9:30-11:30am) – Good news! Although we had originally planned to cut off online registration this Sunday, we have extended the online registration deadline to Wednesday, March 15.

As of now, about 40% of our seats in the sanctuary are filled. We do still plan to have onsite registration the day of the event, but ONLY if there is space available. We will not be using the overflow seating in the lobby for this event.
One of the best options to share about this event is to show your friends the video trailer. There are two easy ways to do this:
1. Via text: Share the direct link to the video trailer (https://vimeo.com/202815571), and include a message like this, “Hey Suzy, my church is showing this as part of our annual Women’s Day, and I’d love for you to be my guest! It’s Saturday the 18th, 9:30 – 11:30 and includes a continental breakfast and the show. Would you like to join me?”
2. Via Facebook: You can access the post for the video on Facebook HERE. Click on “Share” and–very important!–tag specific FB friends in your post with a message like this: “Suzy Smith and Betty Jones – my church is hosting this and I’d love for you to be my guest, would you like to join me? Saturday 3/18, 9:30 – 11:30.”
HYC/HKK Update – GREAT NEWS – Registration for HKK is NOW OPEN! We will be returning to Eagle Rock Retreat again this year. Go this website for full information: hkk.gatewaycitychurch.info
We also have received word from the Kansas City church about Heartland Youth Camp; registration for HYC will be opening VERY soon, hopefully within the next two weeks. Stay tuned!
