WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY:  Beginning on February 7, Pastor DeGier will be leading a weekly Bible study on the book of 1 Corinthians.  This book teaches us a great deal about the power and importance of the gospel, about what Christian love and unity should look like, about how to truly love a brother or sister in Christ who is endangered by their own sin, about how to use the freedom that God gives us as Christians, and so much more.  We will meet on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 AM at Christ.  Please join us to be fed by God’s Word and grow in your faith.

LENTEN MEALS: A sign up sheet is posted in the Narthex for families, groups or committees to sign up  and prepare a meal prior to the Lenten services.  On nights with no one signed up, the meal will be potluck 

FELLOWSHIP TREAT SIGN-UP: A new fellowship sign-up sheet has been put out, and there are several dates to choose from to help out in this much needed service! We thank those who have volunteered their time and talents to make our fellowship time extra special each week!

Special envelopes for this are located to the right of the Board of Christian Education bulletin board. Also, applications for financial assistance for both the CWTAP and the PK-16 programs are due by February 1. 

GREETERS NEEDED!  Please sign up for a date on the narthex bulletin board. Individuals, couples, and entire families are encouraged to sign up to be greeters!
