Church of Christ Encouragement: Jan. 16, 2011 I pray that the God of peace will give you every good thing you need so you can do what he wants. God raised from the dead our Lord
Jesus, the Great Shepherd of the sheep, because of the blood of his death. His blood began the eternal agreement that God made with his people. I pray that God will do in us what pleases him, through Jesus Christ, and to him be glory forever and ever. Amen. Heb. 13:20-21

From John: Hello, I’m back from my mission/vacation/weather survival trip to Mexico and California. Because of the severe weather some of the congregation (including me, your preacher) were not able to gather with the church last Sunday and so the huddles that were to have happened did not. So this Sunday we will meet huddles during the second hour. The teens will have one, another will focus on summer events and a third will meet to catch up on the organization for Men’s day. Pick and team and get in the action I will begin a new series of lessons and our worship service will have two primary parts, establishing a pattern that the worship planning team will work with over the next few months. One part is to draw us near to God through worship. The other part is to build up one another through the Word of God and prayer. Expect this second part to be more interactive and participatory for you than just being the audience of a sermon and prayer led from the platform. (In other words, shorter sermons come with a price.)
Until further notice there will be no devotionals out at the Merkelys. The roads are not good and the temperature is dangerously cold at night. Gerald may still be planning something for teens but at the church building. Stay tuned. From Communications: Karen needs to meet with communication team. ASAP. There are several things we need to get caught up with. With the events coming up we need to get advertising lined up, wondering how the directory and pictures are coming along. So.. please update me on your area and what is happening. Will set a date/time soon. Because of my upcoming surgery I would appreciate everything being lined up because I will be out of things for awhile. Thanks Rental huddle: We have new rental applications and forms done and nearly ready to go. Please contact Connie or Karen if you want to rent the building or know of a group or organization that would like to rent our facility.
The elders and I meet this Saturday morning for prayer and planning. We have discussed the need to include others in our meetings but have not really planned for it at this point. Nevertheless, I invite your input into our agenda. Please reply to this email with any congregational matters you feel your shepherds and servants should be praying about and/or planning.
