Announcements for the week of Jan. 9

First off, I am EXTREMELY sorry for not updating regularly.
It was a busy end-of-the-year, and I couldn't get around to this.
Announcements will be posted, but sermons will take some time.
Please be patient with me, and sorry again.
Happy New Year! Wow, it's 2011 already.
We hope that God will have many blessings for you this year.
Here is the verse to know and memorize for January:

"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
- Ephesians 4:11-13

Winter Term Calendar
After service on Sunday, be sure to pick up a calendar.
It outlines what's to come for January through April.
