From Pastor Andy... We are living in times of crisis – everything is a crisis. There’s the Energy Crisis, the Housing Crisis, the Economic Crisis, the Health-care Crisis, the National Security Crisis, the Stock Market Crisis, and the “moral” crisis! The list goes on and on. Will God take all of our crisis situations away because of His love? Not necessarily. Sometimes He walks us through crisis situations to bring us to a higher level of praise so that He might receive the glory. What does it take to understand that God is the answer to all of our problems? He reminded us a couple of weeks ago with the “Miracle on the Hudson” plane crash in which a commercial airliner made a safe water landing with no loss of life. That was a reminder, in times of crisis, that Jesus is alive and well! In that miraculous event, the pilot walked through twice to make sure that nobody was left onboard before he left the aircraft. The co-pilot took off his own shirt in the bitter cold to give it to one of the passengers who had slipped into the frigid water. Both men showed us what God would do; they placed others ahead of themselves! In these Times of Crisis may our Awesome Father, Son, and Holy Spirit deliver each one of you! In His Love,

Andy

One of the things that has been on my heart lately is that our choir is not full each week. I’ve asked some of you, personally, to consider singing with us. Frequently, I hear one of these responses: • Oh, believe me, you don’t want me to sing with you. OR • Oh, you guys sound fine without me; you have plenty of people. Well, if you just can’t carry a tune, I understand; or, if you just don’t enjoy singing, I agree that you probably don’t need to be a part of the choir. If, however, you enjoy singing and can carry a tune, we need you to consider becoming a part of the Worship Choir. There are many of you that I have never been able to speak with personally about this. When I mention it on Sunday to the congregation, you probably don’t think seriously that I am speaking to you. Well, this is a personal invitation: If you like to sing, regardless of how well, we need your help! Being a part of the choir is really quite simple. Here’s how it works: • We practice on Wednesdays from 6:30 p.m. until 7:45 p.m. • We provide a listening CD of the songs we sing and we rehearse the songs for several weeks before we sing them. • We meet in the Choir Suite on Sundays at 10:15 a.m. to warm up. • We lead worship with all our heart on Sunday mornings and on special occasions. We are having an “introduction” rehearsal on Wednesday night, February 4. I would like to ask you to consider coming to the rehearsal just to check things out. We will sing through some of the new music for the quarter, give out rehearsal CDs, talk about the upcoming Easter program and listen to a little of the music, as well as discuss the mission of the choir. Please consider, prayerfully, becoming a part of the Worship Choir. We need at least 15 new members to get where we need to be. If you have questions or need more information, see me on Sunday; or, you can send an email message (Alan@TaylorRoad.org). Better yet, just meet me on Wednesday, February 4, at 6:30 p.m. in the Choir Suite. Thanks so much for your consideration. I look forward to singing with you!

Preschool Ministry

Children's Ministry February at TRBC is going to be great! What a perfect time to reflect on God’s love and how our love should mirror His! We have several opportunities to show that love in action:

TRBC LOVES PRESCHOOLERS!! That’s right! We LOVE preschoolers! And, this month we want to thank all the volunteers that have a heart to tell little children about Jesus. We LOVE our Sunday School teachers! They willingly and joyfully share their hearts, filled with Jesus’ love, with your children. Each Wednesday night they meet together to prepare for Sunday. If you have a preschooler please thank his/her teacher this month for sharing Jesus with your child. We LOVE the teams of volunteers. They lovingly care for our children during worship service each Sunday. They are essential to TRBC worship and other ministries. I would like to thank Jessica Gamble, Lynn Williams, Melanie Fore, and Elizabeth Anderson for serving as leaders of the teams of people who care for preschoolers during morning worship services. These faithful volunteers serve sacrificially each month. If you are not part of one of these teams, you will have the opportunity to join this month. We LOVE our weekday children and teachers! The TRBC preschool area is alive during the week with children from our church and from the city. This has been a great year and we are blessed to have a full house each day. Mothers Day Out is for ages Birth – 36 months and Kindergarten is for ages 3 – 4. NOTE: We will begin registration for the fall and summer weekday program on February 2. Church members should take advantage of priority registration and a discounted fee during the first week of February. On February 8 the Preschool Choir (4 & 5-year-olds) will share some special music during the evening worship service. Join them right away for practice at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday nights.

February is Food Collection Month. Our AWANA classes handed out paper bags on January 25 to fill with canned goods for the Chisholm Ministry Center. Additional bags are available at the information desk in the foyer of the Education Building. Please be generous and let’s show Christ’s love and care to our neighbors! We will collect food all month, but please start bringing your contributions right away. We are asking for volunteers to deliver the food on two dates – mid-month and end-of-month. If you would like to help with transferring food to temporary on-site storage and delivering it to the ministry center, please contact the Church Office (271-3363) or Ruth Givens. This is an important ministry area and we need your help! There is a HUGE need for Good News Club volunteers at Halcyon Elementary School. Currently, the TRBCsponsored club serves children who are eligible to attend the (YMCA) Goodtimes Program at Halcyon. We need to start a second club that can be open to all children who wish to attend. This is an opportunity to reach many more children, but we need people-power to do it. We have a place of service for ANYONE willing to help. Please contact Ruth Givens to volunteer. Training will be provided to those who have a heart, and an hour each week, to share Jesus with children through the Good News Club. The second annual Father-Daughter Banquet will be held on Tuesday, February 10. This is a very special and exciting activity for girls, ages 5 years old through Grade 9, and their fathers! Pictures will begin at 6:00 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $20 per couple; $5 for each additional daughter. Tickets will be sold on Sunday, February 1, in the Grand Foyer; in the Fellowship Suite on Wednesday nights; and, in the Church Office on weekdays. Please note that the banquet is not just for “fathers and daughters.” Bring a special father figure or a special “adopted” daughter along! Mark the date and get ready for some fun! An AMAZING Summer Kids’ Camp is being planned! This year, camp will be June 1-5 at Laguna Beach in Panama City Beach, Florida. We have a limited number of spaces available, so watch for sign-up announcements. Invite your friends; we would love to have a full group!
