This Sunday we return to our normal service schedule at 9:00 and 10:30. Pastor will be speaking from Matthew 2:1-18.

We say “good bye” to Dot Ryon who has been with us nearly every Sunday since Tom Sooy died. Dot has done special services and been here to do rehearsals for our Christmas cantata and special music. Dot begins a new interim at Ocean City Presbyterian Church next Sunday.

New Member Classes begin Sunday at noon.

The Cents-Ability Offering will be received Sunday. Please use the lunch containers at the entrances to the sanctuary for your donations to feed the hungry.

Our January Good News was delivered to the post office yesterday.  For a sneak peek visit our website and follow the Good News link.

Our annual winter fundraiser letter should be in the mail next week. This will help fund steeple repairs, parking lot seal coating, kitchen fire suppression, etc. These “pricey” items go far beyond our regular maintenance allotments. Please respond generously. This effort will continue until the end of February.

On January 22 we will have a spiritual life conference in conjunction with our Sunday brunch. The conference will begin at 11:00 following the brunch. We will break for refreshments after the opening session and continue until about 3:00 p.m. The opening session is on spiritual life and the second is on spiritual lifestyle – including diet and personal care (our speaker, Dr. Gary Young, is a chiropractor and nutritionist). Spiritual life is something we all need. Plan on being with us for a day of growth and development spiritually. (There will be time for questions at the end.)

Sunday, Jan. 29, is our congregational meeting. There will be one service that day at 10:00 a.m. and the meeting will begin a few minutes after church gets out. A pizza lunch will be served (free) in Madden Hall following the meeting. Be there!

Our senior youth will be away January 13-15 in the mountains skiing with Jack and Kendal. Pray for them.

* * * * * * *

Lunch Bunch will travel to Romanelli’s Garden Café, Rt.9 in Galloway, next Wednesday. Meet at the church at 11:30 or at the restaurant at noon.

* * * * * * *

The closing session of our Christmas course, “The Journey”, is tonight at 6:30 in the lounge. We hope to start another course in February.

* * * * * * *

The Sarah Circle postponed from last week will meet Wednesday, January 11, at 6:30pm in Cobb Lounge.

Parents of the cast of The Lamb’s Tale should check their church mailboxes for complimentary videos of the performance from Sunday, December 11. Special thanks to Chris Gillis for taping the video, video editing and burning the DVDs.

Please remember in prayer ~
