Welcome to our newest members – James Scott, Josh Ryan, and Sean & Cheryl Finnegan! See their photos and welcome them.

Next week is your final week to contact your neighbors and collect non-perishable food items for our Souper Bowl of Caring churchwide outreach, if you haven’t already! Bring items to church on Jan 29 or Feb 5. Information cards to hand to your neighbors will be available again Sunday at the back of the sanctuary or in the lobby. Keep praying for your neighbors and for God to continue to turn our hearts toward those in need. More info is available here on the City.

Mission Service Project to France
Consider joining a short-term team to France Sept 23-Oct 7 to support our missionary, Stephen Darling. This team will restore and repair his ministry building located on the coast in Normandy. Team members willing to paint, deep-clean, do yardwork, as well as specific tradecraft and other professional skills are needed. Visit the table at the back of the sanctuary on Sunday, or email Francesca loudoun1864@gmail.com or Todd harrisherd@outlook.com.

Our Legitimacy: Discipline
Hebrews 12:5-11 reveals how sonship is proven in the hardship of God’s training and discipline. God’s intent is to change us to be more like Jesus—and as we know, at times this occurs through circumstances we wouldn’t choose. Listen to “Our Legitimacy: Discipline” and be reminded and encouraged that hardship is not a sign of God’s absence! We are His, He is with us, and He is working!
