Women's Study Starting January 23rd

Steadfast Love

Register Online Here

Books $13 - Available from Church Office Now

There are times when worship overflows effortlessly from a heart full of gratitude and praise. And there are times when God seems far and we feel we have nothing to offer. Throughout it all, God shows us His steadfast love.

Psalm 107 is a call to worship. It reminds us that each season of life is an opportunity to reveal the anchor of our souls. In this 7-session Bible study, learn to face both storms and deserts with courage and trust in Jesus, and discover how tests in our journeys of faith reveal the true condition of our hearts. For there is no fear for the one who fears the Lord, the one whose soul is anchored in His steadfast love.

2nd & 4th Wednesdays at 6:00pm

Starting January 23rd

Radio Ministry Survey
The Church Council is asking for input into our daily radio devotion ministry. You are asked to fill out a short survey to let us know your thoughts on the ministry and help us plan for the future of this ministry. Surveys will appear in the bulletin over the next couple weeks, but can also be completed online by clicking here.

We thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey!

Parent Meeting with Parents of Children & Youth

With the recent resignation of our Pastor of Young Discipleship, Pastor Zach would like to meet with the parents of our children and youth to discuss the program, discern the needs of our families, and work on a plan for these needs before we move to hire new staff.

Please join Pastor Zach on Sunday, January 13 at 5:30pm in the reNEW Youth Room for a discussion. Supper will be provided. Children and Youth are welcome to join their parents at this meeting.

A/V Booth Volunteer Training
January 23rd at 5:30pm

Pastor Zach will lead a training for anyone interested in learning more about running slides, sound board, or recording during our worship services. You can learn one or all of the jobs to be part of our volunteer pool for Sunday mornings. This training is for people of all ages. We've found children, youth, and adults alike have spots they can help us out with in the A/V Booth.

We have added an option to run the slides remotely from an iPad during worship, so you can volunteer to run the slides and sit anywhere in the sanctuary you want. 

If you have questions, please contact Pastor Zach.
Weather Closing Procedures
During this time of year, it may become necessary to cancel worship services and activities because of weather conditions. When these decisions are made, it will be made with the safety of our members at the forefront of our minds. When we do need to cancel we will use the following methods to inform everyone. Please check these sources before heading out on Sundays when the weather conditions merit:

KAKE TV
KWCH TV
Local Radio
Facebook
Sunday Morning Parking
We've recently been asked by a number of people about parking for those who need to be closer to the doors on Sunday morning. The Church Council wanted to remind people about our parking options and make a request for those who can walk a little farther to the door. 

Handicapped Parking: We have handicapped parking available in our parking lot to the west of the Education Building/Fellowship Hall. These spots are marked with signs. These spots allow you to walk near those buildings and across the alley on a heated pad that prevents ice buildup. The north door to the building also has an automatic opener that can be utilized by hitting the large marked button. 

Parking Near Doors on South and East Side of Main Building: We ask that that you leave the spots closest to these doors for those who need to park just a little closer to the door to make it in. This request is for the main doors and the street parking near the south door (Common Grounds door). If you are able to walk a little farther, there are spots on the east side of Fellowship Hall on the street and in the farther parts of our parking lot. 

Thank you!
Change to Pastor Zach's Schedule
Starting on January 7th, Pastor Zach will be taking his day off on Mondays to accommodate appointments with Nicole leading up to the arrival of their child. He will be working on Friday, and is available by appointment only on those days, as teh office will still be closed.
