Billy and Dr. James Jones of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church (the Philistines), have agreed to a March Gladness Sunday School Attendance Tournament that will take plane in the month of March! The tournament will be played on the Sundays of March 11th, 18th, 25th, and April 1st. The two churches will compete with Sunday School outreach and contacts that can be scored and tabulated. Each class will have their score cards tabulated each Sunday morning on an official score card. Each contact made that week is worth 2 points, and a visitor that is invited to Sunday School and comes to the class on one or more of these three Sundays—is worth 3 points each!The winning church will be treated to a desert meal served to them by the opposing church. The opposing church’s pastor will also get a pie in the face! Of course, we want MHBC to win the March Gladness tournament, and see Bro. Jones get the pie in the face. Invite others to our Sunday School class and help MHBC in the March Gladness Tournament. Hopefully, it will be a lot of fun, and get folks to Sunday School to feast on the Word. •The 4th Annual Couples Retreat has been scheduled for March 9-10, 2018 at Barren River Lake. Couples of all ages are invited to attend. We hope you will be able to join us. It is always a great time of fun and fellowship! There will be an evening session on Friday night and two sessions on Saturday morning. Bro. Billy and Sue Ann will be leading us in this time of celebrating marriage. The cost for the retreat will be for your room at $94.00 plus your meals. We will eat at the lodge where they have a wonderful buffet or you can order off the menu. If there are couples that would still like to be a part of this year’s marriage retreat please let Bro. Billy or Mark Carney know. Those who have signed up have until March 5th to pay. Make your check payable to the church and put on the memo line that it is for reimbursement of room at the marriage retreat.
