Weekly Bulletin for Sunday January 17,2016

A Closer Look:

Cold Weather Gear: For the next two Sundays (1/17 and 1/24) we will be collecting new or gently used warm coats and women’s warm shoes for people who need them.  The coats will be distributed to programs like Rosehaven, The Father’s Heart Ministry and My Father’s House. And the shoes will be distributed at Rosehaven.  They can be brought to the church lobby and we will distribute them. 

 

Volunteer Opportunities: Are you interested in joining our children's ministry team? There are some opportunities now available to get involved. We are looking for new members to our nursery team. Like rocking babies and reading stories? Perhaps joining the nursery team is the place for you. We also are looking for an additional Life Electives teacher for our 1st-3rd grade class. Lastly, consider joining our Kids Worship Team. Have storytelling skills? Come and help share the word of God with our kids! Talk to Pastor Sarah about where you are interested in getting involved. 

 

MUD Update:  Please be in prayer for our High School Students as they will be traveling home this evening.

 

Family Ministry Parent Meeting:  Join us January 31st for our next Family Ministry Parent Meeting.  Erik Cave will be sharing about cultural shifts impacting families today.  Lunch and child care are provided.

 

Welcome to the Freak Show: Save the date of March 6th for the next all church talent show.  This is a great night to be together as a church family.  Sign ups to perform will take place in February so start thinking about a talent to share.

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
