Today’s Scripture Reading: Psalm 51

Today’s Message: Genesis 50 “Confessing Brings Times of Refreshing”
Tonight: We continue in Psalms

Thursday Night:
We continue in Jeremiah

Message from Pastor Homchuck & Family:

“Thank you to all who sent us Christmas cards filled with such encouraging words. The gifts were a blessing, and many have already been put to good use. Thank you to the entire church body for the generous gift, which will be used to further the life long education of all six of the Homchucks. You make us feel very loved and appreciated. As one of you signed our card, "2010 is gonna be Awesome!" Amen for God is being Magnified!”

Pleasant Meadows Outreach: Please join us as we minister today at 12:30 p.m. at Pleasant Meadows Assisted Living.

Operation Christmas Child "Item of the Month" Program:  We are asking for donations of a specific shoebox item each month to hopefully increase our shoebox output for 2010.  January's item of the month will be "chapstick and other hygiene items."  Please see Kevin or Lisa Bowden with any questions.

Attention Moms!  Do you worry about your children?

First Step Pregnancy Resource Center:
Has some empty baby bottles up back for you to take, fill with spare change, and bring back for donation to help them offer free confidential pregnancy tests along with resources to help women make an informed choice.
Ride Ministry: We offer a ride ministry for church services for those with no vehicle, or for those experiencing vehicle troubles.  If you or someone you know would benefit from this, see Kevin Bowden.

Troop Packages: There is a donation box on the back table with a list of items needed by our troops.  We collect these items and send out packages on a quarterly basis.  If you have any questions, please see Tracy or Nan Redmond.

Missions: Our goals and ambitions for ministry in a foreign land seem lofty and beyond our ability.  Perhaps this is the posture God wants of us; we’ll at least know for sure that whatever progress occurs follows His might and accrues to His glory.

The question about future ministry still hovers over us.  But this much is clear:

the Bible commands us to go,
the field hopes we will come,
the figures show us the need,
the Spirit promises us the strength,
the Judgment means we must go.

An eternity will record our reply.
