PRAYER AND PRAISE POINTS Every other Wednesday evening the Elders meet for several hours to pray for the body and seek wisdom as they strive to lead and shepherd the body at Big Woods according to the Word of God.  Last evening some of the pressing needs and prayer points that they are asking for you to pray alongside them can be found here.

PRAYER GATHERING Join us on Wednesday, February 23 at 6:30 p.m. for our next Prayer Gathering. This prayer gathering will be every other Wednesday and will be one of the ways we can bear one another’s burdens as we seek to faithfully follow Jesus together. There will be no potluck prior to the Prayer Gathering.

PRAY FOR OUR ELDERS Please pray for our Elders as they gather together on February 26 for their annual retreat.  Much of their time will be spent praying and discussing the future vision for Big Woods.

MEN’S WORK AND WORSHIP One of the most important roles for a man as husband and father is to lead his wife and family in worship. Yet, it continues to be a major miss in most homes! Since men often learn best shoulder-to-shoulder, following our time of work (9:00-11:00) we will have a time to learn WHY and HOW we can shepherd our homes well in the most important area of family worship. Men, mark your calendar for Saturday, March 5 starting at 9:00 a.m.!  Lunch will take place at 12:00 noon.

FELLOWSHIP ON THE SLOPES A group will be meeting on March 5 at 1:00 p.m. here at the church and heading to Ski Sawmill Family Resort.  Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun.  Each individual/family will be responsible for their own transportation.  If you are interested in going, please use this link to sign up:  Any questions, please contact Jared Simcox at
