I do hope your week is off to a positive start. It is hard to believe this month is nearly over! Here are just a few things going on around the church:
Today: Yoga at High Noon, then the Quilters spend the afternoon/evening in Fellowship Hall
Tomorrow: Exercise, Eat and Pray at 9:00AM, the Dutch Treat Dames meet for lunch at noon at the Cornerstone Deli
Thursday: Pastor's Big Day out and about (visitation, meetings, etc.)
Friday: Exercise, Eat and Pray at 9:00AM, Pastor in the office till about noon/1PM.
I am available to visit you this week around the above schedule. If you desire a visit from me, don't hesitate to let me know. I have a couple of people already scheduled to see me.
Next week, I will be in Austin, Texas for 4 days of required continuing education hours. I look forward to spending some time at my alma mater (www.austinseminary.edu) to attend lectures and do some research in their amazing library. This is a working trip, so if you need me, you can call me! I will be driving home on Thursday, Feb 2nd.
Please remember in prayer, Peggy (Dyer) White, and her family, as they grieve the loss of her husband Bruce. His obituary is attached. Remember we came to know them better as Jack Dyer's daughter and son-in-law. They are a dear part of our church. Included in this obit is information on making a memorial gift to Kairos Prison Ministries, where they spent much of their time serving the Lord.
Annual Meeting February 5th! Yes, I know it's also Superbowl Sunday, but this won't detain you for long. We will meet briefly after worship to receive the Annual Report, vote on renewing my contract/covenant and elect new Elders and Deacons. Come to church for communion and this meeting afterwards in the Sanctuary. Hopefully it will be more happy than humdrum.
Just think, whenever you run into each other around town this week, Church happens. For as Jesus says, "For where 2 or 3 are gathered in my name, I am among them." (Mt 18:20)
Make this a great day!
