Into 2018

Greetings in Christ Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, 

Okay so, 

We have finished up with Christmas and we are now set to jump off and into 2018.

January can be a bummer.  It often contradicts the enthusiasm, bright lights and tinsel of Christmas.  So.... now the babe of Bethlehem is born amongst us.  Now what?

Well, for starters we will have a church-wide leadership meeting.  This meeting is open to all who are interested, but if your are serving on a church committee for 2018, please make plans to attend: Sunday, January 14th at 5:00 pm in the Friendship Hall.  We will be discussing our various roles and the rules for the road ahead.  On Sunday, January 21st, we will be officially installing our church officers during both worship services.

Instead of indulging in the post-Christmas blues, in January we will find ways to live together in the light of Emmanuel, now that God is with us.

God Bless, 

Bro. Scott

See you Sunday!
