Beginning in the New Year


On the first Sunday of the new year, Dr. Bush began a series of sermons on “Six Challenging Questions of Faith.” These are questions people sometimes ask out of curiosity or doubt. There are good, encouraging responses for such questions, and we will explore some of them. Here is an overview:


One. Why Believe Jesus Is God? (January 4)


Two. Why Should I Trust the Bible? (January 11)


Three. Don't All the World’s Religions Really Say the Same Thing? (January 18)


Four. Do Pain and Suffering Count Against God? (January 25)


Five. Is Free Choice Real or an Illusion? (February 1)


Six. Is Christianity Committed to Miracles? (February 8)

Praising God

The sanctuary is open before GTF on Wednesdays from 5:15-5:45 for prayer for our church members, staff, and officers. Praise God for our many blessings including our interim minister, Dr. Bush, and for sending us Pastor Steve and Susie Graves. Ask God to help us be a light for Him. This is a time for individual prayer, staying as long or short a time as you want.


This Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. is a  night designed to acquaint our church family with one another. Speakers are Amy Delaney, Faye Bull, and Josh Nexsen.  Reservations are essential for the 6:00 p.m. meal. Call the church office by noon on Monday (534-0088).  Menu options:  (1) Dinner meal {$7 adults, $6 seniors, $3 children 10 and under}: fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, green beans, garden salad;  or (2) pizza {$3}.  The family maximum is $20.00.





The youth will be raising money for the Souper Bowl of Caring through a soup lunch after church on Sunday, February 1 (soup and chili prepared by Shawn Boltin). They are asking for a donation for the lunch, and all money received will go to feed hungry people in our area. Church members are also asked to donate canned goods. They will also be collecting food items through February 8; food can be left in a box in the Fellowship Hall and the grocery buggy in the Centre. Please remember to check the expiration date of the items.


During this lunch we will have an opportunity to express

our thanks to Dr. Michael Bush for his service with us.
