February 2015 Newsletter

WHAT’S GOIN’ ON?! Newsletter

Well 2015 has officially arrived!  How has God blessed you so far this year?  Are you looking for where He is working in your life?  I hope so!  He has been active in our church adding the Cobb, Miller, Blystone and Smith families as new members.  Also, Lori Jones began a 5-week Bible study equipping many of our ladies on how to study the Bible.

Here’s what you can look forward to in the month of February…The Ladies Bible study will finish up their last two nights on Tuesday, February 3 and 10.  The Women’s Retreat, “Transformed,” will take place in Indianapolis on Friday and Saturday, February 6 and 7.  Both look to be such blessings for the ladies of our church!  Enjoy, ladies!

Sunday, February 8, will be another one of those “pack a lunch and a pillow” days!  Let’s break it down!  A Council meeting will be held at 8:30 a.m., with a Church business meeting following the morning worship service.  The Deacons will be meeting at 4:00 p.m. doing whatever good things they do!  252 activities will begin at 5:00 p.m. with prayer. Lesson time on the subject of “kindness” will end by 7:30 p.m.  Teens and adults…we have something for you too!  Your lesson time starts at 6:00 p.m., so come on over!  We’d love to see you, and you might even like it!

Saturday, February 14, will be a church work day from 8:00 a.m. until noon.  I know that is Valentine’s Day, but my only response to that is…Who is your first love?  ‘Nuff said!  See you there!

A Mothers of Pre-Schoolers (MOPS) group is being formed.  If you are interested in helping or joining, see one of the following ladies:  Meredith Lund, Lainey McCrory, Patty Pound or Lori Jones.

If you are not currently serving in Extended Session or Jr. Church, we really need you!  Check with Claudia Overpeck, Sue or Pastor Garry to find out how you can help in Extended Session.  Talk with Pam Melloh or Pastor Garry to help with Jr. Church.  Be a blessing to the young families that are attending our church…I’m sure you will be blessed in return!

The Alaskan Mission trip won’t happen until August 3 through 7, but Doug and Regina Overpeck need to purchase the plane tickets soon to get the best possible price.  If you have been thinking/praying about going, you need to let them know ASAP!

Finally, FYI…here are the members of the Operation/Planning Team:  Matt Miller, Qynn McCrory, Gary Overpeck, Hal Robb, Pastor Garry and Pastor Rick.  The team is meeting weekly and will take over many of the decision making issues that our Deacons have handled in the past.  This will free up our Deacons to focus their efforts on serving our church family.  Please be praying for these men as they seek the direction God has planned for our church.
