It’s a new year and we’re doing some new things! Our children and youth activities are moving to Sunday nights.  Our children will now be meeting on the first Sunday night of each month from 5-7 PM for an extended time of crafts, music, lessons and even some field trips.  Our youth will now be meeting every Sunday night from 5-7 PM.  Children will start off in the Theatre Room (upstairs in the CLC) and our youth will meet in the Senior High room (upstairs in the CLC).  We hope this new schedule will allow more of our kids to participate in these activities.  If you have any questions, please see Megan Burke (Children’s Coordinator) or April Bridgeman (Youth Coordinator). 

You are invited to  a 100th Birthday Party for Miss Mary Carrier on Saturday, February 8, from 2:00—4:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall.

The Winter arrangement on the alter is in  memory of Marion Morris and Lillian Good by Elaine Good.  The cardinals represent their January birthdays.

If you wish to contribute to the Rockhold Food Pantry, please leave canned goods and/or monetary donations to the church office by Wednesday, 1/15/2020.

Beginning next Sunday, January 19th, we will begin a sermon series on the Means of Grace: Prayer, Bible Study, Holy Communion, Fasting and Fellowship.  As we begin this new year, I invite you to be present for these messages and set a new focus on following Jesus in 2020.  This series will lead us up to the season of Lent.  Blessings, Pastor Sean

Resurrection is coming up soon!  Our youth will be heading to Pigeon Forge the weekend of January 24-26 for a weekend of worship, teaching and fun.  If you are interested in going, please see our youth director April  Bridgeman.
