VBS

It’s January but time for us to start preparing for VBS. As we  prepare for this year’s VBS we need to start planning the budget to purchase prizes, snacks, set decorations, etc. If you would like to begin donating to VBS, please mark an envelope in the pew with the letters VBS or add it to your tithe envelope.  Thank you for your prayer and financial support as we begin planning for this outreach. If you are able to be a part of the VBS team (teaching, games, snacks, etc) please put your name and VBS on the blue card in the chair pouch in front of you! We are currently working on an exact date.

 

Clearances

For all who work with our babies, toddlers, elementary and youth, we ask that your clearances be up-to-date.  We are happy to assist you with these. Also, we will be scheduling mandated reporter training in the near future. More information will be coming.

Meal Ministry

Our meal ministry has been quite busy over the past few months. If you would like to be added to the list to make a meal when needed, please let Anna or Diane Crumrine know.  Don’t like to cook you say? Gift certificates to local restaurants or grocery stores are also welcome, as is cash!  Thank you for helping us bless our church family!

 

Finances

As we enter into the new year 2022,, we still have a substantial balance due to the bank for the parsonage roof repair that we desperately needed this past year, along with a few other expenses. Thank you as you faithfully pledge to helping us bring this balance to zero.

 

Special Thanks!

To Kurt, Jesse, & Brad for taking all the Christmas decorations down and putting them away! And for re-decorating the platform! Thanks so much!

 

Painting

We are in the process of repainting some of the classrooms  downstairs. The paint is dry, but items may be out of place for the moment. Thank you to Glen Stough for handling this for us!
