We welcome Space City Sound to the choir loft this Sunday. These young men rehearse in our Fellowship Hall every Thursday night. Aaron Turner, who was raised at Pines is a member of this wonderful choir. In the Barbershop Harmony Society, Space City Sound is the current Southwestern District Small Chorus Champions and Southeastern Division Champions. Space City also won the inaugural Rice Village Sing Off in November. We are thrilled to have them minister to us in both services this Sunday, February 11.

Date for Eight!  If you are interested in meeting Pines members in a casual atmosphere, then Date for Eight is for YOU!  We form groups of eight people (singles or couples), who meet once a month for an informal potluck dinner in a participant’s home.  You can sign up for one or two monthly dinners during March and May.  Note that each month will be with a different group. Signups will be held February 4th , 11th and 18th in the hallway by Fellowship Hall or via email at sharondotson@gmail.com or aotermat@earthlink.net.
