Cathy Daley, Director
Children's Outreach Ministries (COM)
Hello, everyone. I don't have any exciting news concerning COM this month, thankfully.
Our school-agers returned to school last week and are still there this week. Hopefully that means things are moving in the right direction for everyone. We are looking forward to warmer weather and the children being outside more in the fresh air. Thank you all so much for your continued support and prayers for our children, families, and staff as we continue to navigate through this ever changing, strange time.

Please remember that we only mail paper copies of statements if you request one. Contact the church office if you would like a paper statement mailed to you (304-562-5903 or email office@forrestburdette.com).
Disciplines: A Book of Daily Devotions 2021
We still have copies of the 2021 Upper Room Disciplines. Our cost was $10.99 per copy; we are offering them to you for $5 each. This book contains a year of daily devotions; start off the new year in a good frame of mind! Copies are available in the church office during the week.
Live Stream Tech Volunteers Needed
To help continue our Facebook-Live presence for our 10:30 a.m. worship services, we need several volunteers to train and learn the process to help this outreach. We are blessed with the technology to be able to reach others for Christ in this new way. Please consider being a part of this team! Please contact Karen in the office or Pastor Jeremy
