Please continue to pray for Pastor Lyndsay. She will be remaining in the UK until at least the end of January to be with her mother after the passing of her father. Please pray that she would find rest and peace as she grieves with and cares for her family.

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to Matt and Sam Chittick who welcomed Josiah Christopher on January 6! If you’re interested in helping these new parents by providing a meal, Kristina Dyck has set up a ‘Meal Train’ for the next week. Go to www.mealtrain.com/trains/r369e2 to sign up, or contact the church office.

WORDS OF THANKS

Thank you to the Ladies Social team for organizing last Sunday’s soup luncheon! And thank you to everyone else who brought along sandwiches and desserts to share.

If you’re hanging on to offering envelopes from previous years, please discard them. Many numbers have been changed and it’s important to keep this straight for our Receipt Coordinator. Please only use your currently dated envelopes, or the pew envelopes.

It’s a new year and we are updating our database. Please take a moment today to check (or add) your information on the sheets in the foyer, and make any necessary changes.

ARE YOU TECH SAVVY or WILLING TO LEARN? We find ourselves in desperate need of more volunteers in our sound booth. Wayne  has moved away from the area, leaving us without a regular computer operator and fill-in sound person. Roger  has been a selfless and dependable volunteer in the booth for years now, but it’s not a job he can or should do alone. We are looking for people willing to learn the sound board and/or the computer (running announcement and worship slides). Training will be available. Please contact the church office if this is an area you can see yourself serving in.
