ANNUAL VOTERS MEETING
The annual meeting of the voters will be held today at 1:00 p.m. downstairs at the church. Voters (communicant men 18 & older) are encouraged to attend. The Church Council and Finance Committee will meet afterwards to organize. New officers (newly-elected or re-elected) will be installed next Sunday, January 24 in the second service at 10:00 a.m. Agendas are at the door. The annual report will be distributed, God-willing, next Sunday.
LOOKING AHEAD TO LENT
The Lenten season in 2016 begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10. There will again be two opportunities to worship on each of the six Wednesdays of Lent – 9:00 a.m. & 7:00 p.m. Please plan to join us!
A REMINDER ABOUT SUNDAY SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
It is assumed that parents who do not send their children to our Christian Elementary School will surely want to provide their children with this weekly opportunity to learn the ABC’s of Bible History and Doctrine. All children are invited to attend our Sunday School. Sunday School is held at our School from 9:10 – 9:50 a.m.
ADULT MEMBERSHIP CLASS If you or someone you know is interested in a course on the ABC’s of Bible teachings toward church membership, please call the pastor (486-2754).
