Marriage Retreat Next Weekend!
Friday–Sunday, February 24–26, married couples are invited to gather at the Westin Portland Harborview (Portland, Maine), with couples from Northern New England for a weekend of inspiring and practical lessons, great fellowship, and time to focus specifically on connecting as spouses. Chip and Ruby Mitchell are our guest speakers this year. We look forward to our own self-discovery, refreshing marital tools, and inspiration for our “Legacy of Love.”

Thankful: Worship Concert
We are excited to announce the “Thankful” worship concert on Saturday, February 25, 7:30–9:30pm at the Arlington building (75 Pleasant St), led by young worship leaders around the Boston Church. This will be a night of moving worship and a celebration of God's divine nature as we raise money for a great local charity. Doors open at 7pm, Tickets are $10 (at the door, cash or card); additional donations encouraged. All proceeds will be donated to Rosie’s Place, the first women’s shelter in the United States.

Participants use the book Grief Journey in Motion by Dr. Timothy Sumerlin (available from the Radls, $15/copy) to guide them on the grief journey in a way that seeks to imitate Jesus’ engagement in grief, builds faith in a compassionate God, and resolves relationship issues. Contact Bruce and Jennifer (radl@...); friends are welcome.
