    We are working on updating our Church Directory.  Please review your information that are on the sheets on the round tables, and 

 put a check mark next to your name once you have confirmed your information.  Please consider adding a cell phone and email address so that 

 we can stay in contact with you.  The final sheet is for additional names, college students, or adult children who now have their own address.
    If the Lord is leading you to make profession of faith in Jesus Christ, a class just for you will be offered this spring. Please let Pastor Josh 

 know that you plan on taking the class so that we can schedule a time that works for everyone. (, 677-2524)
    The elder/deacon membership care groups have been reorganized for 2017. Instead of being organized according to the alphabet, 

 groups were randomly assigned to each elder and deacon to eliminate conflicts of interest and so that each group did not have everyone from

 the same family.  These groups exist because our leaders are called to keep watch and to be shepherds of the church of God (Acts 20:28).  

 Your leaders have a special calling to care for you, so get to know them and let them know how you can pray for them.  Take a minute today

 to look at the care groups handout that was put in your mailbox or hanging on the bulletin board.  Take note of which elder and deacon is 

 assigned to you, pray for them, and introduce yourself to them as one of their "sheep."
