Next Tuesday, January 12

2:00pm Staff Meeting


DAVID’S ROOM IN THE INN continues through March 10, 2021.  We are doing things differently to make sure our guests and our volunteers stay safe!  We now have our Sign Up Genius - click here. To protect everyone, only those who sign up will be allowed in the building.  If you need help, you can call the office and be put on the office lists we will have in paper form.  Each job has its own sign up.  We also have opportunities that don't involve being present on Wednesdays!  Contact Rider Allen for information.


BUCK IN A BASKET - While we cannot actually pass the basket, we are still hoping for contributions.  In January we are collecting for Housing Authority Hot Spots.  The children and youth in school need internet access and rely on hot spots, which cost $10 each per month.  The Mission Committee challenges you to purchase at least one hot spot per family member this month!  Simply send your contribution to the church - memo Buck in Basket Hot Spots so it gets recorded properly.  AND THANK YOU! 


WIRED WORD CONTINUES on Sundays, 9:00am by zoom.  Each week, led by Dr. Nathan Love, we will explore a current event in light of Biblical and theological considerations.  Good discussion.  Email Leslee to get on the distribution list and the zoom link.  A recording will also be made available for those who aren't able to join us 'live.'  We'll open the meeting a bit early so folks can join in fellowship. 


COFFEE AND CONVERSATION CLASS meets Sundays, 9:00am by zoom.  Contact Margaret Stein for the zoom link.  THIS SUNDAY the Sunday Circle will meet. 


GODLY PLAY for our children in Kindergarten-5th grade meets every Sunday.  Contact Dr. Mary Evans for zoom information.  Newcomers are always welcome! 


GLOVES WITH LOVE is collecting donations of children's/teens socks, underwear, warm jackets, gloves, hats, scarves, etc.  You may drop in the office or clip to the line on our fence (please put in a ziploc baggie to keep dry).  We will also use any donations to purchase items as well (as designated).  Thank you for your generosity!  Our donations are benefitting both the Housing Authority and the local NAACP.


MID-WEEK STUDY - TESTIMONY - continues on Wednesdays 7:00pm by zoom.  Dr. Glenn Kirkconnell is leading this six week series that will help us live our Reformed faith.  Contact Leslee Kirkconnell for zoom information. 


ABC'S OF DIVERSITY - Monday evening book study will begin Monday January 18 (pushing back a few weeks), 7:00pm by zoom.  Contact Leslee Kirkconnell for book and zoom information.


ART EXHIBIT Fourteen works by Peg Truman will continue to hang in the Fellowship Hall for a time, since the church has closed. The hoped for exhibit and sale of the work will need to wait until people can safely view the work. Contact: Diane Simmons (270)791-0819.

It has the  readings (or listening - it will read you the passages if you like) questions, maps, videos and more!  Questions?  See Matthew Covington.
