News and Announcements for the Week of January 5

Sunday, January 12, is Invite A Friend Sunday.  We would like each person who regularly attends worship to be praying specifically for someone and to invite them to come to worship that Sunday.  We will celebrate Invite A Friend Sunday the second Sunday of each month.  Of course, you can invite a friend to come any time, but we hope you will make a special effort for Invite A Friend Sundays.

Leadership Training, Sunday, Jan. 19, 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall.  All ministry team leaders and committee chairs are asked to be present for this once-a-year training.  We will cover some basics of leadership, leading a meeting, setting goals, working with the budget, communications, and our church organization.  We will have a Leadership Dedication in our worship services on January 19.

Thank You to all who have given their Commitment Cards for 2014!  Thank you for prayerfully considering what offering you will make to God through our church. Your gifts are an act of worship and an investment in opportunities for God to work through us. Our prayer is that you will find greater contentment and simplicity in your life as you put God first in your giving and your living. May we all experience the joy that comes from knowing that our gifts honor God and change lives!  If you have not turned in your Commitment Card, please turn it in to the church office.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, thank you so much for your gracious gifts and warm wishes this Christmas.  It has meant so much to our family to be part of yours.  It is an honor to serve as your pastor.  With love, Dan, Samantha, Camille, Luke and Zaiah

Thank you friends for this tremendous blessing of a gift.  You have helped bless 2 more families into housing this month, both with steady employment.  We are thankful for your partnership.  May God richly bless  you all in 2014.
