NEWS & NOTES
We are collecting the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering (RMMO). This is a way for us to say “thank you” to those who have served us in the cause of Christ. The proceeds will be distributed in Christmas ’09 to help assist our retired servants of Christ to meet their needs. Please use the special envelopes or notate your check accordingly. We are thankful for the gift of new life… Onalee Fae McConnell (born Dec. 3rd to Maegan and Shawn) and we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of a little one to Brad and Amanda, due by the end of this month. To help these families celebrate, we’ll have Baby Shower Baskets in the back of church through February 15th.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
(1 Timothy 2:1-2)
