LIFE Groups Start Up Next Week
Our winter 10-week session of LIFE groups begins during the week of January 10. Please go to to find the list of locations and times. There are numerous locations on most days of the week, and some have childcare. Get connected with your church family in 2016!

Souper Bowl of Caring Outreach Opportunity
Souper Bowl of Caring is a church wide outreach which will impact our community on multiple levels. This outreach will introduce us to our neighbors, feed the hungry through the collection of non-perishable food from our neighbors, and hopefully begin to establish relationships too. Cards will be handed out in the foyer and stairwells on January 17. Take a bunch to hand out in your neighborhood by January 24; schedule pick-up of the canned goods by January 31; bring the cans to church on February 7.

Smiling Faces Needed
Would like to be the first friendly smile that people see on Sunday mornings? Please consider joining our Welcome Team. For more information on what’s required and how the schedule works, contact Debbie Stevenson (

Prayer & Praise
We praise God for the families who come forward today to dedicate themselves to raise their children to know and love God all their days. As a church family, please encourage them by praying and coming alongside these families: Tony, Sarah & Catherine Cavicchi; Harley, Adrienne & Rebecca Green; Chris, Amy & Abigail George; Josh, Bethany & Bailey Johns; and Leigh, Amanda & Gloria Riese.

On January 3, Pastor Jack started the new year with a new study through the wonderfully rich Book of Hebrews. Catch the introduction at “The Final Word” to begin 2016 as the year that you more fully see Jesus, The Son.
