Next week, Denny Weidman will facilitate the class. The study is on Right Now Media - Haggai: Building God's Church. In this four-part series, leader and communicator Dave Cornes challenges our priorities and spiritual apathy, reminding us that God has given us a purpose: to be part of the most magnificent building project imaginable, the church. Consider this a wakeup call. Allow the Holy Spirit to stir up your devotion to God’s work again.

The Faithfully Fit are regularly accomplishing their spiritual goals. The Temples continue to lead the Warriors in all categories. Both teams significantly increased their exercise time this week. Check out the display in the Fellowship Hall for details.


The dates have been set for the spring series of Grief Share. We will offer the Loss of Spouse event on Tuesday, February 14, at 6:00 pm. The weekly series will begin on Tuesday, February 28 and continue through May. We will serve a meal to participants at 5:30 each night. Be praying for these events and invite others. Contact Marie for more information. 


Its the beginning of a new year and time to update your directory photo and any other information. Since we are transitioning out of Faithlife soon we have extended our Instant Church Directory to meet those needs for the next year. Please use the link to update your photo and other directory information. If you do not have the app please go to the app store or google play and download it. You can create your own account. Please contact the office for more details. An email was sent out to encourage everyone to make these changes. Please make your changes by Sunday, February 5th for the printed version. Thank you!


BOOKS needed! The library is asking for donations of used books to update the church library. If you have any books that are in good condition and are fairly current to appeal to the congregation, please place them in the box labeled “donations” under the table in the library.


Barry Maust will now be looking for offertory specials. If you are interested in sharing your talents with the congregation, please contact him. We would love a variety of music by a WHOLE RANGE of people...no one is too young...or OLD! If Barry doesn't hear from YOU, expect a tap on the shoulder!


Ash Wednesday will be on Feb. 22nd. Given that Pastors Dave and Bill will be in Ohio for the CMC Pastor's Conference that week, we will not have an Ash Wednesday service this year. For those who are interested, Cross Lutheran's service will be at 6:30PM that night.


David Shupe has begun his term as elder after receiving broad based affirmation. Thank you to all those who submitted their forms. We welcome your prayers as we meet together and discern the Lord's leading.
