In the Life of the Church - January 28, 2022
Session has called a congregational meeting for Sunday, February 6, following worship. The purpose of this meeting is to approve the pastor’s 2022 terms of call and to received proposed by-law changes.
Spiritual Growth Survey—help us plan spiritual formation and growth opportunities this year by filling out our survey. A link has been sent out, but if you’d like to fill it out on paper, you can take home a copy today.
We are searching for friendly and reliable nursery-preschool assistants for Sunday mornings. You could volunteer once a month on Sunday from 10:00 A.M.to 11:00 A.M. for class. You will work with the present teacher, Vicki Johnson. If you would know someone who would be able to do this every Sunday as a paid job, that is also an option. Talk to Chelsea if you’re interested.
Messy Church returns Saturday, February 19 at 10:00 am. Can you help lead an activity and talk with people at the tables? We need table hosts! Sign up on the Connection Card.
Do you like cleaning and organizing? We have a project for you! Talk to Chelsea for more info.
We are looking for more volunteers to be in the rotation of people who count the offering after worship each Sunday. If you are interested in learning more, talk to Chelsea or Dani Cole.
We welcome Ann Kelley and Candy Ott as our new teachers for the elementary Sunday School class. Thank you both!
Pastor Chelsea will make a donation to a non-profit organization for each Connection Card we receive from now through the end of January. Indicate on the Connection Card on the back of your bulletin which of these organizations you would like to receive a gift in your honor. So far, here are the totals: Presbyterian Disaster Assistance KY Tornado Relief ($75), Warm Blessings ($115), CASA of the Heartland ($20), and Feeding America Kentucky’s Heartland ($5).
The children of the church are taking part in the Souper Bowl of Caring, a national project
to tackle hunger, and we would like to invite
you to join in!
Jesus fed the hungry and commissioned his disciples to do the same, so we are partners in mission with Warm Blessings, our local community kitchen that feeds the community and does so much more. Leading up to the Super Bowl, our children are participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring and are raising money and food donations for Warm Blessings.
Our goal this year is to raise $2,000 and to collect 300 food items for Warm Blessings, which will help them feed many families and continue to meet the increased demand for meals in our community. We need everyone working together to meet our goal, so we would be happy for you to participate if you are able.
And can you ask a friend to pick up an extra can of veggies the next time they are at the grocery store? Are you part of a group that might like to fill an entire box together? Would you be willing to pick up on item from each of your neighbors?
We are taking monetary donations as well as any food items. Warm Blessings has a specific need for #10 cans of vegetables (the really, really big cans) and large cans of “cream of” soups (22 oz, approximately). Food and monetary donations can be dropped off at the church.
We will be blessing all the food on Sunday, February 13, during worship at 10:00 am. Please encourage everyone to bring food and donations with them to worship that day. We would love to have everyone who helps join in to help bless the food, then box and load it at 11:00 am after worship.
