Hello, Just a very few things for you this week. We seem to be in that lull between the rush of the holidays and the start of the New Year!
Sunday morning worship with Communion begins at 10:00. Our choir will be back with us, a Kids Message from Shannon during the service and Pastor Kevin’s message will focus on the work of the Holy Spirit. Kids Connection is in place too! Coffee time follows in Veno Hall. Hope to see you here as we begin 2016 together as a church family.
If you usually participate in the Helping Hands offering, look for that envelope in your bulletin on Sunday. It is good to remind you that those funds are used at Pastor Kevin’s discretion to help those in our church family and in the community with financial needs.
Elsa and Georgia are planning on having the offering envelopes for 2016 available on Sunday in the Welcome Center. If you do not currently use envelopes and would like to, please speak with Elsa or Georgia on Sunday. Also, if you see envelopes that have your name on them and you do NOT plan on using them, please let them know that as well. Funds for the church are received in many different ways and sometimes envelopes are not needed. Thank you!
If you are a member of the church Council, please make note of the meeting on Monday evening at 7:00 here at the church in the Ruth Room across from the office.
Leanne Geisser called the office and asked for prayer for her mother. I do not know the details but God does, so please remember Leanne’s Mom in your prayers.
A new sign-up for altar flowers is posted outside the kitchen. As the new year begins, keep in mind that this is a good way to honor a special person or event in your life. The cost is $30. The floral arrangement is delivered to the church on Saturday and you are welcome to take the flowers with you following Sunday worship.
I will post new sign-ups for coffee time in the coming weeks. In the meantime…thanks to everyone who has been helping out with all the details that make coffee time work!
We are hoping to grow our Sunday nursery care offering, and would love to add about 3 more people to our nursery rotation. It’s a 1 Sunday a month commitment, Contact Meg at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
I think that is all for now. Thanks for taking the time to read through this weekly connection each week. This is just one of the ways we try to keep everyone aware of what is happening at your church and keep you in the loop!
