SOCK DROP – Socks continue to be the #1 need in homeless shelters year round, but especially during the winter.
Now through February 22nd, we are joining in with Star 99.1 in an effort to collect socks for men, women, and children
for distribution through the River Ministry (who we supported this past September).  While the main goal is warm,
thicker socks for winter, thin socks would be put to good use also.  

ANNUAL REPORT – Thank you to all who attended our annual meeting and fellowship luncheon last Sunday.  Copies
of the 2018 annual report and the 2019 budgets are available in the coffee room.

SOUP FOR YOU – We are continuing our soup fundraiser through the cold months to help keep us warm.  If you
would like to order, please use the insert in the bulletin or
this link. Orders are due on Thursday, February 21st for
pick-up on March 1st.

ONLINE GIVING -  We are pleased to announce a convenient new way to make
your regular offerings.  With our new electronic giving program, you can easily
set up a recurring giving schedule or make one-time contributions. At NO COST
to you!  We encourage you to set up a schedule of recurring contributions.
It’s convenient for you and provides much needed consistency for our church. If you are currently giving on a weekly
basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. Even when travel, illness or
other circumstances prevent you from attending services, our church will continue to receive your contributions on an
uninterrupted basis. To become an electronic giver, contact
Roger Knauss or call the church office.

CENTER FOR FOOD ACTION can always use your help!  If you can donate canned or packaged goods, please
do so in the boxes located in the foyer and the coffee room.

NEW MEMBERS: If you are interested in joining our church and would like to learn more, please see Pastor
Bill for details.
