ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING January 27 at Noon. We will enjoy a delicious ham dinner provided by our Fellowship Committee followed by the presentation of the 2019 Budget and reports from our leadership. Members are expected to attend.
BLANKET SERVICE PROJECT: Tonight at 6 PM in Fellowship Hall, we’re making “no sew” fleece blankets for Safe Harbor, an organization that provides counseling for children who have had a death in their immediate families. Each student should pick out and bring “no-pill” fleece, 1&1/2 yards of a print AND 1&1/2 yards of a contrasting solid to match the print. We will work together on cutting and tying the blankets to send to Safe Harbor. Contact Natalie Kelly with any questions.
JESUS FOCUS FOOD PANTRY AT BETHANNA: Please continue to bring in your unexpired, unopened nonperishable food donations as we reach out to help those in our community who are less fortunate. The food pantry is currently in need of canned fruit and bottled juice. However, any donation of nonperishable food is always welcome. Thank you for your continued support. The Mission Committee

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
gods at War – 9:00 AM
This week: This 3rd week we come to the god of love. Sexual abuse is a reality that we are all uncomfortable encountering let alone tackling. What are the needs and how can we minister?
Next week: This week we come to the god of money. How often do we determine our value by our valuables or our self-worth by our net worth? Money has the potential to become a powerful idol.
Join facilitator Bob Proske at 9:00AM in the lounge.
The Parables of Jesus
This week: The third session will examine the parable of the lost (prodigal) son to illuminate the character of God and the lostness of humanity. It is about a Father who is willing to go out to those who make even a step in the right direction in The God of the Kingdom.
Next week: The fourth session will use the parable of the hidden treasure and the pearl to clarify The Demand of the Kingdom. The fascination with finding buried treasure is universal but it requires action, risk, focus, and persistence, (characteristics of a disciple).
Join facilitator Gary Edwards at 10:45AM in the lounge.

Lord, I bring You my sinful nature as You've revealed it to me. I know I don't have anything valuable to offer except myself and my love. I can't earn Your forgiveness, but You've offered it as a free gift from Your Son, Jesus Christ. I accept Your control of my life and I intend to serve You, obey You, and follow You from this moment forward. You have my past, my present, my future, my family, my money, and my time. Nothing will I withhold. Thank You for loving me and forgiving me, and making me Your own. Amen
