Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Today, we started a new series - "Not Finished Yet - How God Rescues". Through this series, you will hear something hopeful in your battles, trials and valleys.

Our RCA Assessment for 2019 is $86 per member. For your convenience, there are four blue envelopes (one per quarter) in your envelope box. As a reminder, the assessment is a fee we must pay to the RCA Classis every year. Any assessment money owed to Classis that is not collected in the blue envelopes must then be drawn from the general fund. Please contact any Consistory members with any questions.
Vacation Bible School
It is time to start thinking about VBS. This year's theme is "ROAR" by Group Publishing. This theme discusses how God is good no matter what is happening in our lives. We are in need of leaders and volunteers to make this year's program a success. Our first volunteer meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 6th at 7pm downstairs in the Van Wyk Fellowship Hall. We will also be hosting a FunShop training event that will be presented by members of Group Publishing. For more info on this year's VBS, visit our VBS page or contact Tommy Van Winkle, VBS Director.
Prayer Cloth Ministry
Have you have placed someone on the prayer list and would like to have a prayer cloth for them? Please contact Kathy Alia or Winnie Caputo. Prayer cloths are also available for special occasions such as baptisms, graduations, confirmations, births, marriages and special anniversaries. For more information on the prayer cloth ministry, click HERE.
Please check the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board outside the upstairs kitchen, and sign up if you are able to host coffee hour.
