It may seem silly, but one of my bucket list items is to make the pilgrimage to Punxsutawney, PA to participate in the annual Groundhog Day festival. (C’moooon, early spring!) Did you know that the roots of Groundhog Day can actually be traced back to the Christian church? You can read the full story, and also learn about other famous groundhogs HERE.
Here’s what coming…
Family Devotional (Wednesday, February 7th, 7pm): If you are a parent and haven’t attended one of our monthly family devotionals yet, we encourage you to do so! More than just a lesson, these monthly devotionals also include fun group activities, and discussion to give and receive additional parenting ideas. These are open to ALL parents of kids ages infant thru high school. Light refreshments will be provided, but please also feel free to bring a snack to share. Childcare will also be available for age 11 and under.
Marriage Retreat (February 10th and 11th, Tan-Tar-A): Online registration will close on next Wednesday, February 7th. Hotel rooms are still available but the block is filling up. Cost is $40 for the retreat, $90 per night for the on-site hotel room. You can go HERE to take care of both. Any questions, please contact Vince Hawkins (Vhawk38@gmail.com).
Singles Valentines Party (Friday, February 16th, 7pm): If you are single and an adult, you are invited! This is a FREE event and friends of Gateway are also welcome! We’ll serve appetizers, play games, dance, take pictures in the photo booth, and more. There is no sign up for this adults-only event but RSVP is requested to help the Singles Ministry plan. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congregational Devotional (Friday, February 23rd, 7pm): It’s family time! Please make plans to join us for the first congregational devotional of the year. Childcare will be provided.

That’s all for now! See you Sunday.
