As we enter this new month of February, there are several opportunities I want to lift up. Last year our Joel Report described several strategies we felt would help us increase our effectiveness. The Report included the recommendation to start to two new teams or committees as we have called them in the past. The Family Ministries Team organized and surveyed the congregation to determine needs and has identified two needs on which they are working: youth said they wanted activities at the church and strengthening of marriages was indicated by many adults. Already we have held one Fifth Quarter for youth in the church and community following a Friday night basketball game and another one is planned in February. We believe this can grow to reach many youth in a safe, fun environment. The Family Ministries Team has chosen a strategy called “Married People” through which to strengthen marriages. Jayne Walker, Family Ministries Chair, will speak about this strategy on February 8 at the worship services which is well-timed with the approach of Valentine’s Day later that week. The Congregational Care Team has organized and developed several strategies to enhance how we care for our members and attendees. On February 1 and 8 Mike Hendrix, the Chair, will present a form on which you can volunteer to assist in several initiatives that we believe will help us do an even better job of caring for one another. Along those same lines the Mission Team wants to offer to pick up anyone who needs transportation to church using our bus. They will start by offering it on second Sundays of the month. If you need transportation, call the church office. If you want to help, do the same. On Sunday, February 1 we will recognize the Honduras Medical Mission team and offer our prayer support. Dr. Joel Edwards leads the team and Dave Salmon is a team member. Keep the team in your prayers. They depart Feb. 6 and return Feb. 15. On February 15 we will celebrate our Boy Scout ministry at the 8:45 AM worship service. The Pack has excellent leadership and strong support. Let’s join in showing our support. The Pack’s Pinewood Derby will be held on Saturday, Feb. 7 at 2pm at the FLC. We will receive new members on Sunday, February 15. If interested, please contact me to discuss. We will begin the season of Lent with our Ash Wednesday Service on February 18 at 7:00 PM. Ash Wednesday is a time to lament our sin and receive the imposition of ashes as a reminder of our need of a Savior. The season of Lent is the forty days prior to Easter excluding Sundays during which we seek to grow closer to the Lord and reach out to those in need.

We will leave the church at 1:00pm to travel together to the park, and return to the church around 4:30pm. (Or families can meet us there at 2pm.)

"Faith Files" Children's Program! The church will begin a trial run of this children's ministry opportunity from March to May, on Sunday evenings from 5-6pm, and we need a group of positive, upbeat volunteers (ages 16 or older) to help us get started! The program will be based on Bristol House's "Faith Files," and will serve the age groups of one- and two-year olds, three- and four-year olds, Kindergarten through 3rd grade, and 4th and 5th graders. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the spiritual needs of the existing families and children we have at our church, as well as be an outreach to families and children within our community.
