The Youth Friday Night Fellowship is scheduled for February 23 at the Manse from 6-9pm. Supper is included, so be sure to RSVP to Jonnie Jacobs or Daniel Hogue.


The SMSS Food Pantry’s current needs include: paper towels, liquid dish soap, oatmeal, rice, coffee and salty snacks. (633 Mississippi Ave.) Service assistance needs in 2023 such as rent assistance, home visits and home repairs were twice the level in 2023 as in 2022. There is a request for referrals of any good electricians or plumbers who might be called on for future needs. The recent cold weather presented a large challenge to a number of SMSS clients. There is a current need for down or down-equivalent blanket donations. Anyone interested in making this type of donation should contact Mary Katherine Austin at 886-1550 or 605-3914. Volunteer opportunities at the SMSS Clothes House (located at 710 Signal Mountain Blvd) exist for Saturdays. Anyone interested in volunteering for a few hours should contact Victoria Skorupa at 219-369-7471.


The Deacons will host a church workday on Saturday, March 2, from 10am-2-pm. They will be cutting down some trees and mulching landscaping beds. If you’d like to help, please come! If you have a chain saw, tools for spreading mulch, and tools for weeding, bring them. Contact Matt Hamilton if you have any questions.


Come to the monthly Prayer Meeting on Wednesday, March 6 at 6pm. At 6:30 we’ll have our Bible studies (discussing James 1:19-27, which is pages 31-40 in the Ferguson book and pages 31-38 in the Neilson book).


March 13 is our day to provide meals for our SMSS families. You can sign up here to prepare food. To help deliver food or if you have questions, contact Marci Cooper.


We will have a brunch / fellowship event for our college students on Sunday, April 7 in the Fellowship Hall after the 9:00 am Worship Service. 


Save the date for our Wayside Women’s Retreat April 5-6 at Fall Creek Falls. There is a QR code in the bulletin to sign up.  February 28 is the deadline to sign up for lodging.
