Why Do I Go to Church on Saturday?

Hear Pastor Tony's Answer on Sabbath, February 6

How would you answer this question? Perhaps you've been a lifelong Seventh-day Adventist. Maybe you're newer to the Sabbath. Perhaps you're not sure it's such a big deal. Regardless of which camp you fall into, Pastor Tony's simple, three-point answer to this question will help you. PLEASE join us in worship this coming Sabbath. In advance and support of his sermon, Pastor Cash encourages you to review the resources found at http://www.sabbathtruth.com.

Springtown Valentine's Party:
Made with Love!

Sunday, February 14, 5:30 pm

Come one. Come ALL. It's Valentine's Day and Springtown's throwing a party.
1) BUBBA BAKE-OFF: Gentlemen! Start your planning. Buy your ingredients. Get ready to cook. Just no help from the ladies in your life. It's time for some good ol' fashioned head-to-head dessert competition. Young and old can compete. Cakes. Pies. Cookies. Tarts. Whatever your heart desires. Show us what you've got. There will be judging and prizes awarded. 
2) SUPPER PROVIDED: While the men are slinging dessert fixings and a healthy amount of "trash" talk, there will be an equally talented group cooking a delicious supper for us to enjoy
3) FAMILY MOVIE: After we've eaten and Bake-Off winners are announced, we'll enjoy a movie together.
4) BABYSITTING? If you need babysitting, please let Teresa Netzel know ASAP.
It may be Valentine's Day, but this is one evening where everyone is welcome!
