Today's program will be done by Adventist Youth on a Mission (AYM). They will be participating and leading in the entire church service and afternoon program. All are welcome to come and be blessed as the youth share their Christian walk with God.

This Sabbath afternoon at 3PM, you are invited to participate in ministering to the nursing home residents at Health Center Standifer Place (Dalton Building)
2626 Walker Road, Chattanooga, TN.  Pat Hammack who is leading is requesting those with instruments and musical abilities to please come and help with the singing. We will meet on the 2nd floor in the activity room.

All are invited to join us as we help at the Samaritan Center, tonight at 8:30. For those who are new to this, it involves sorting and moving all the stuff from the drop of spot into bins and the warehouse. It's fun and many hands make for light work.

Please take Messiah’s Mansion postcards for your friends, neighbors, and coworkers from the foyer table. We have 5,000 postcards to share! 
Messiah’s Mansion, a life size exhibit of the Mosaic sanctuary will be hosted by South Bay with tours from April 1-16.

This Week

South Bay is expecting many visitors to Messiah's Mansion from April 1-16, especially on weekends. After reviewing the Sabbath parking situation in our neighborhood, we have determined that parking on the streets will not be welcomed by our neighbors. The Oakwood Baptist Church (4501 Bonny Oaks Drive) has generously offered for us to park in their overflow parking lot directly across from their church.

On Sabbaths (April 1, 8, and 15) all members (handicapped excepted) should park in this overflow area. Drivers should drop families and food at South Bay and then proceed to the parking lot. Shuttles will be running frequently to take drivers from the lot to our church. Signs will be posted to help you find the parking area.
We need your help with Messiah’s Mansion setup! A minimum of 25-30 people are needed on March 29 and 30 to help setup Messiah’s Mansion. We need 7-10 people on March 31. While children are helpful, we need adults to help carry heavier items. Please signup at this link … MM Setup Volunteer Sign-up.

During the time Messiah's Mansion is up—April 1, 8, and 15—Adult SS 1 & 2 with the Spanish class will be meeting as a combined class in the Fellowship Hall (Health Education Wing).

Mid-Week Connection at 6:30PM this Tuesday:   Join us as we wrap up our 6 part photography series with Holli by reviewing the photography assignment submissions that came in as a response to last week's assignment.  Holli will bring it all together in this final photography class.  

Mid-Week KIDS Connection at 6:30PM this Tuesday:  This week we will learn more about plants and seedlings. The theme for this week is Sunlight.

Messiah's Mansion Volunteers Needed: We need volunteers to assist with Messiah's Mansion while they are here.  A sign up sheet is located in the foyer with the various time slots and job positions.  

Morning Prayer Line: Remember we meet each weekday morning from 5:30-6 AM for prayer via ZOOM and Sabbath mornings from 8:50 - 9:20 AM here at the church.  The link is under the prayer section of your church app.
