Well, it seems like old man winter finally caught us! These are some of the things you need to be aware of for the next several weeks at church:
Tomorrow evening at 6:30 is Free Family Film Nite! Celebrate the new year with a family friendly animated film for ages 5 and up in Veno Hall. Kids are welcome to bring a pillow and sleeping bag to keep them comfie as well as a snack to share. This will be an early evening leaving plenty of time for the little ones to get home and settled down for bed!
Saturday morning at 9:00 is the WISH Gathering for all ladies. Get together in Veno Hall to work on prayer shawls, enjoy coffee and fellowship as well as chat about distribution of the WISH profits from the Christmas Fair. Our WISH group has been blessed to make several donations to World Vision as a result of their hard work for the Fair. They have really made a difference in other lives! All ladies are welcome.
Sunday morning worship begins at 10:00. Sometimes it seems “routine” to list all the activities of Sunday, but I know that if you are here you will be blessed and better prepared for the week ahead. We share this time together as a church family to sing, share our prayer concerns and praises, have our Kids Connection for the younger ones,hear an encouraging message from Pastor Kevin and be blessed by our choir and United Quartet. I hope you will plan now to make Sunday morning worship part of your weekend plans.
You will recall that in the past 6 months we have been blessed by the arrival of several new babies here in our church. Those little ones are now more comfortable being cared for in our Nursery during worship. So…Meg needs a few more volunteers to help out with this need. This is on a rotating basis and obviously the more that can help out, the better! Please see Meg if you are able to make this 45 minute monthly commitment.
Please look for Elsa or Georgia if you are in need of offering envelopes for 2016.
As mentioned before, the Hospitality Team is planning a “Souper Bowl” luncheon for Sunday January 31st following worship. Please note this has nothing to do with the traditional Super Bowl Football game! It is a time to get together on a cold Sunday and enjoy hot soup and breads with friends! Some important information will also be discussed in order for everyone to be well -informed prior to our Annual Meeting on February 14th. Mark your calendar and plan to be here!
We will have a “mock up” of the church directory available at the January 31st luncheon. I will ask that you look at your contact information and initial it wth your approval OR make the necessary changes. That info will be what is printed in the directory and will be distributed to our church family here.
If you typically prepare a report for the February 14th Annual Meeting, please start thinking about that now. I would like to have the reports in the church office by February 5th in order to allow me time to compile them for the meeting. Thank you for your attention to this.
I have posted new sign-ups outside of the kitchen for coffee time. Thank you to everyone who has been stepping in to help out! Again, there are 3 ways you can help out: come a bit early to set-up, provide snacks for everyone to enjoy and clean-up. The sign-ups will take us through the end of April.
