CANCELLED!
Haddock Diaper Shower

Haddock Diaper Shower is cancelled this Sunday due to baby girl Haddock deciding to grace us with her presence early.  If you brought a gift please leave it in Taylor Hall for Paul and Judy to pick up for the family. 

The family is requesting Pampers Swaddlers diapers, Pampers Sensitive wipes, and board books instead of cards. Keep an eye out for  a food train so we can keep them fed good healthy food!

Look at the average baby diaper and wipe numbers below!! :0

On average baby will need: 
(This is average for at least 40-80 diapers in a pack)

Newborn:  2-3 packs
Size 1:  30 packs
Size 2: 15  packs
Size 3:  30 packs
Size 4:  46 packs
Size 5:   45 packs

In baby's first month she will use an 80 count of wipes in about a week. That's a lot of wiping for mom and dad!

PINC

To those interested in renewing our PINC (Partners In Christ) meetings, please respond in an e-Mail. In your answer, please relate the following answers:
  1. Your level of interest
  2. Evenings that you Cannot meet
  3. Types of activities that interest you
Our goal is to meet together and get to know each other in a more personal way. In sharing various activities, I think we accomplish that in a very Christ-like way.

In the past in addition to opening devotionals (when appropriate) we have performed several service projects - Valentine and Easter Baskets for seniors, Preparation of eggs for our Easter egg hunt,and help with fund-raising projects of the church. In addition we have prepared items for sale to raise funds and had sale of donated items.
We have also participated in fun activities such as movies, bowling, art and wine parties, and dinners out   We also had interesting speakers for our meetings as well as instructors for arts and crafts projects.

Your response to this message is important in deciding the future of PINC.

Youth Happenings

What a fun February! We joined together with three other youth groups for our first ever multi-church lock-in! 31 students from across the county participated. 

 During the month of March, we will focus on the Lenten season leading up to Easter. Each of us will adopt a daily practice during this season that we hope will not only bring us closer to God, but also to our brothers and sisters in Christ. 

Peace, 
Kaitlin
 


 

Crisis Control Ministry

 
Crisis Control Ministry is requesting INSTANT POTATOES for the month of March. This is a good staple and can be used in just about every meal.
One thing you might not realize is that with every item you bring to share,  Crisis Control  doesn't have to spend as much money to purchase food. They can use their funds to help a person pay his rent, keep the electricity on in his house,  purchase heating oil to keep warm, and even pay for expensive medications. Their request is  simple. The need is great. First Christian Church always responds.
 
Thank you!
Becky Minnix
Christian Action Ministry
