Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Today, Pastor Christopher continued his series - "Not Finished Yet - How God Rescues". Through this series, you will hear something hopeful in your battles, trials and valleys.
We are excited to announce our church bell has been returned and restored. We are in the process of planning the bell shelter outside. In the meantime, it will be kept in the Sanctuary until it is dedicated in the Spring. Below is a video from members of the Confirmation Class with an update on this restoration project.
OTHER CHURCH ANNOUNCEMENTS
Next Sunday, February 24th, we will have some special musical guests, Josiah and Kristen Van Dyck. Josiah is an accomplished oboist, and his wife, Kristen, is a successful violinist. They will bring special music and add beautiful music to our Sunday Worship. Take a moment this week and invite a friend or neighbor to join our worship service next Sunday at 10:30am. It promises to be a beautiful service.
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.
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.
