MISSION TRIP TO BARCELONA, SPAIN

Sara Perkins is going on a mission trip to Barcelona to help start Cru ( a Christian campus Ministry) on campuses there.  Please join her team and pray for her and the other Midshipmen from the United States Naval Academy who will be traveling there in March.  If you feel led to donate to help cover the $2800 cost of her trip, you can put a check or cash in the offering plate, or send it to the office.  Please put Sara Perkins in the memo line or on the envelope.  You can also donate online at give.cru.org/1022505 and fill in the message section with Sara’s name.

A WAY FORWARD UPDATE

The United Methodist Church globally is praying and seeking direction in regards to its definitions and stance on marriage.  February 23-26, the General Conference, our highest decision-making body, will be meeting to make decisions about our way forward through these issues.  You can join us in preparing for this meeting in three ways:
 
† Praying daily from 2:23-2:26 pm for the General Conference and its delegates

† Join us for a special discussion on the decisions being made. Wednesday, January 16th for church leadership, and January  23rd for the general congregation, both following our Wednesday night dinner. 

† Join us for a day of prayer and fasting on Friday, January 25th including a prayer service at 6pm in the sanctuary. 

 

Thank you for your prayers in these matters.  If you have any questions, please see Pastor Dave.
