“No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.” Calvin Coolidge

Feel the Warmth Sometimes it takes more than a parka or a blanket to keep another person warm. Sometimes it takes the presence of a caring Christian friend. Stephen Ministers share the warmth of God’s love with those who need it most: the lonely, the depressed, the grieving. Is God calling you to reach out to those who are hurting? Consider serving as a Stephen Minister. For more information, please join us for an informational meeting this morning, Feb. 12th, at either 10:15 a.m. or 11:45 a.m. in Room 112. Any questions, please contact: Liz Alden, 480-4970929, Sally Butler, 480-345-0926, or Elizabeth Winkler, 480-456-6573. �
