yay
Raise your hand if you are excited for Kids Club this week! We are still looking for volunteers to come and hang out with our kids – let us know if you are interested.

“Welcoming Justice” Book Partners
All members of the University Church of Christ are invited to participate in a book partner opportunity through Pepperdine’s Office of the Chaplain: “Welcoming Justice” by Charles Marsh & John Perkins. Please email al.sturgeon@pepperdine.edu if you would like to participate and be partnered with another church member (or if you have a suggested partner). Also, let Al know if you are already participating through a Pepperdine department so that he can maintain a list of all church members involved. You will be asked to (a) read the short book; (b) discuss with your partner on at least two occasions; and (c) attend a special private event with John Perkins on Monday, March 26, at 5pm.

UCC 101 Lunch & Class

Kids Club Guest Opportunities!
The UCC Kids Club for K-5th graders meets from 4-5pm in Baxter Park each Thursday afternoon with Al Sturgeon and Annie Little. We play, sing, and study the Bible from 4-4:30 and then have a special guest join us for the last 30 minutes. We have several guests in the works for this semester but would LOVE for other church members to come this semester and share something fun with the kids for 30 minutes. Contact either Al or Annie if you are interested in serving our children in this way.

Prayers:
– The Powell family, grieving the loss of Carlton’s father.
– Falon & Nate Barton, preparing to move to Uganda.
– Paula Bryant, Haley Love’s mother, recovering from surgery.
– Sammy Maiorca, Steve’s father, who is living with ALS.
– The Mancuso family, who are expecting their second child!
– Missionaries: Mindi and Dereje Aleme (Ethiopia), Joseph Dzamesi (Ghana), Igor Egirev (Russia); and the mission organizations we support: Let’s Start Talking (worldwide), Made in the Streets (Kenya), and Predisan (Honduras).
