Let's focus on the new year! Rev. Jim Warren will preach on a familiar passage, Ecclesiastes 3:1-15, and the name of his sermon is, "What Time Is It?" You may hear the message in both the 9:00 a.m. traditional service and the 10:15 a.m.
One and All service.
Our Chancel choir will lead us in hymns appropriate to the theme of a new year, and we will receive a gift of music from Holly Irvin on flute, all at the 9:00 a.m. service. At 10:15 the One and All band will lead us in some upbeat and prayerful tunes. As always, you can be sure delicious breakfast treats and hot coffee will greet you in this service in Fellowship Hall.
A New Month for Gifts for Another Table:
This month we are collecting for Ministry and More. Items needed include canned fruits and vegetables, boxed meals (macaroni & cheese, Hamburger Helper), canned soup with pull-top lids, cereal, crackers, cookies, and peanut butter & jelly. This is a fantastic food pantry that helps a lot of people!

Things to Do While
You Are at Church
Check In on Facebook while you are at church. And at the One and All service feel free to use your device for social media, to share photos and thoughts about your worship experience as it happens.
Make a new friend! Greet a visitor. Show folks around and help them with questions they might have. Invite them to worship and/or to share fellowship over a cup of coffee or breakfast treat. The bulletin is a great source of information for visitors, as is the Information Center. Let's be a welcoming church!
