Mid January Connection

Hi everyone, Hope you are having a good day!  Here are the things to have in mind over the next days and weeks.

Saturday morning is our  first WISH Gathering of the year.  All women are invited to Veno Hall at 9:00.  We are having a winter theme with cocoa and  snacks to share.  Lots of things to chat about. We have some work to do on prayer shawls as well.  Hope to see you there!  Ladies – check your emails for updates from Cindy!

Sunday morning begins with Prayer time in the church parlor at about 8:45.  Worship begins at 10:00 in the sanctuary.  It was great to see several new faces and some we haven’t seen in a while last Sunday!  Be sure and greet new folks and invite them for coffee following worship.  Wasn’t the choir GREAT  last Sunday?  Be sure and mention your appreciation to Steve and Chris and the choir as you think of it. I am sure they would appreciate it.

In preparation for Pastor’ message on Sunday, take a look at Pages 133-134 in The Story OR if you prefer, the Bible passage is First Samuel 2:12-17 and chapter 4: 1-22.  Even spending a few minutes ahead of time, will help you on Sunday morning!

It was great to hear new music during the offertory this past Sunday, and we’ll be getting a chance to lift our hearts in praise to the Lord together with this new music this coming Sunday!  Take a listen to this beautiful song (with a little country flare in this version) so when we come together on Sunday, we can lift up this song of praise from the depths of our hearts! Third Day – God of Wonders (w/ Lyrics) 

Our Under 40 Discussion Group will be meeting at 11:30am following worship.  We’re continuing the video series “All the Places to Go”.  Grab coffee and treats in coffee time and come down to the first floor conference room!

The Church Council will meet briefly in the Welcome Center following the service on Sunday.  Please be prompt 🙂

Offering envelopes and financial statements are available in the Welcome Center.  Be sure and stop by the table and pick up your materials.

DON’T FORGET…as Rich mentioned last week, our Annual Meeting is on Sunday, January 29th following worship.  This is an important time.  We review the events and details of the past year and look ahead to 2017.  Please keep in prayer all those who are preparing reports and working many hours to have items available for your review.  Also, be in prayer for our church and all those in attendance as we seek God’s presence and that a spirit of cooperation will be evident.

Reminders…

$25.00 gift cards from Shaws and Big Y are appreciated for those in our community who are in need of assistance.

Prayer request cards are in the pews – please keep that in mind if you have a need you want to share with Pastor Kevin.
