Mission Dollars: Each Sunday, we are asked to place $1.00 in the offering for a specific mission each Sunday. C.W. and Leslie Bing were with us to share the work of their ministry, Water for the Oppressed. Our Jamieson congregation was able to present a gift to support their sharing of the Word of God in Zambia. Please pray for God's continue blessings on them.
Bible Study: Regular daytime Bible Study is held on Wednesdays at 1:00 pm, starting with a study of the Book of John. The only book necessary is your Bible. Evening Bible Study is every Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. The study will be an overview of the whole Bible - Genesis through Revelation - based on Henrietta Mears' book "What the Bible is All About." There is no need to purchase the book as handouts will be provided each week.
World Day of Prayer: Jamieson will host the World Day of Prayer service for Clarksville on Friday, March 7, at 10:00 am. The program focus will be on Egypt, and an offering for grants that aid women and children around the world will be collected. Lunch will follow. All are welcome.
