— Spring Financial Peace University (FPU): Put it on your calendars, Financial Peace University class will start in March. Graym and Sasha Kasko invite you to participate in a nine-week Bible-based course, Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace,” that teaches how to wisely steward your money. If you would rather take the course from the comfort of your own home, there is a need for a host to open their house up to the class. Look for additional information soon, or you can let Graym (firstname.lastname@example.org) know your interest.
— Women’s Art Exhibit: The Redeemer Women’s Committee invites you to a night of art and reflection on Saturday, April 1st. Join us for desserts, coffee, fellowship, and a special art gallery at 7:00pm featuring works by female members of our church. Our hope is to look back on our corporate study of Genesis and the idea of “Beginnings” in our faith through art and conversation. The gallery will feature pieces that interpret the idea of “Beginnings.” Through a casual program we will engage, individually and collectively, with the idea of our beginnings and God’s role in them.
A suggested $5 donation at the door is requested. All works will be available for purchase. April 1st- Fellowship Hall- Redeemer Church of Arlington @ AUMC, 716 S. Glebe Road, Arlington, Virginia

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: Some of my FAVORITE shoutouts are when others nominate servants. This time we have a nomination from a whole group: Bluemont Community Group wanted to shoutout to Eben and Kean Faherty!
At last week’s member’s meeting Eben and Kean were rockstar helpers in cleaning up. They stopped playing and immediately began to gather chairs. They worked consistently and were not distracted by bouncing balls, conversations, or preschool toys. Rather they faithfully brought chairs to the Bluemont group, giving sweet encouragement (“Great job!” “Wow that is a lot of chairs” “Thanks for doing that”). THANK YOU, Eben and Kean for serving and setting an example of how all ages can participate in Redeemer community
