We give thanks to God to have Al Pfeuffer (pictured on the right) as a member of our congregation! He and his twin brother, Elmer, celebrate their 100th birthday today. We were honored to share it with him last Sunday. Click on this post for an article written by Carol Stubbs and Nancy Rust about Al's life.
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Beginning February 17 at Noon, and continuing through March 23, join us on Wednesdays for a time of fellowship and introspection. Our Agape Prayer Lunch participants will provide a simple soup lunch while you reflect on God's grace through a wide variety of musical offerings provided by our Music Director, Dr. Matt Steinbron. Each week will feature a different artist providing beautiful and contemplative music ranging from piano to guitar to voice and culminating with a chamber ensemble. This event is free and open to the community.

Join us this Wednesday, February 10th at 5:30 p.m. for a traditional service featuring the imposition of ashes.
Ash Wednesday is a time to reflect on our limited nature and the unlimited nature of God's grace and mercy. It begins the season of lent as a time of deep reflection on the presence of the holy even in the experience of the broken.
SOLES 4 SOULS — We just bagged up another 200 pairs of shoes to go to Jerusalem Christian Church to help start microbusinesses around the globe! A HUGE thank you to Rose Marcus and Pam Stroup for having the “SOUL” to get those put together and bagged up for collection.
CHRISTMAS CHEER FOR MOSS GARDENS — Moss Gardens is a low income housing apartment community for seniors, subsidized by the federal government’s Housing and Urban Development Division (HUD). This year the elderly and disabled residents have suffered severe reductions in their benefits. Residents who used to receive $80 per household now receive $30; those who received $40, now get $15; and those who received $30 are getting only $10 a month in benefits. This reduction makes it almost impossible for them to buy basic necessities such as hygiene, toiletry, and paper supplies.
We are collecting necessities for these residents and will deliver them for Christmas. All items can be bought cheaply at Dollar Tree (everything’s $1), Dollar General, or Sam’s. If you are unable to shop, give your donation to Minnie Cook or Sue Turner and they will shop for you.
