Housekeeper Position: As was shared at the annual celebration, Kim Swartzendruber has indicated that she is moving toward retirement from her position as housekeeper at Pigeon River. We are deeply thankful for all of her work and flexibility in keeping our building clean and inviting. The elders are beginning a process of filling this position. If you or someone you know would be interested in being considered for the position, please contact Pastor Dave or one of the elders.

Need help reaching your New Year Goals – check out the Church Library! The Education section has financial, marriage, family and parenting resources. Also consider checking out the DVD section to learn about End Times with The Oracle, Answers to know what you believe and why, Foundation to defend the truth or Following Jesus In A Land of Conflict to discover how Jesus can bring peace.  

Each team is leading in one of the categories for Faithfully Fit this week. The 3 R's continue to lead the weight loss competition, losing an amazing 3% of their body weight this far. The Temples surged ahead in the Exercise category and now have logged over 200 total minutes of exercise. But the Warriors made a great comeback with their Spiritual Goals this week. They have a completion rate of 78%. Everyone's a winner as we focus on better physical, spiritual and emotional health. Keep up the good work!
