____________________________________________________________ Welcome and Happy Sabbath to each and every one who chose to come and worship with us today. We are blessed to gather together in the presence of the Lord. May you go out from this assembly and bless those around you! ____________________________________________________________ Today’s offering is for our local church budget. While many have been busy buying gifts and giving to others, let us hope that they haven’t left out the One who provides every need.

The “Faith Today” class that meets in the board room has just started a new study. It is the second 40 days book to prepare us for the second coming. Consider joining this class on a life changing study. All are welcome. ____________________________________________________________ A new study group "Encountering Christ" will begin meeting in a few weeks in the copy room. It will be an informal meeting with the intent of bringing churgoers closer to one another. ____________________________________________________________ Social Committee is hosting a "Soup-er Bowl Cook Off" 1/27/13 from 2:00 to 4:00 with our sister churches. There will be lots of fun and prizes so bring your favorite soup and recipe. ____________________________________________________________ There is a brother who is in need of temporary shelter now that winter is here. If you are moved to help, please contact Pastor Ramos or Elders Prophete or Cooper. "But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves." -James 1:22
