HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
I hope that all of you are heading into 2022 with renewed hope and ready to face all of the great joys and challenges that await us in the new year. (Let’s just hope there are far more “joys” than “challenges”!
SUNDAY NIGHT YOUTH...So, after much consideration and discussion, the Adult Leadership team has agreed that in order to begin this year off safely we are postponing our SUNDAY NIGHT MEETINGS for the next 2 weeks (JANUARY 9 & 16). This will provide us time to evaluate how the new COVID strain will be affecting our community as we return to school, work AND get beyond the holiday “wave’ of infections! I know this is not a great scenario, but we feel it is the right thing to do at this time.
LET ME BE CLEAR… We are NOT CANCELLING the YOUTH SKI TRIP (January 21-23). The SKI TRIP will be the next time that we will meet together! If you have not done so, please contact Rodney (336) 906-3036 (a text message is great) just to let me know you are going prior to Monday, January 17!!! Payment for the trip is not due until the Friday (January 21) that we leave! IN ADDITION…COVID, we are asking that if you plan on going on this year’s SKI TRIP, the will agree to get a COVID TEST within 3 days of the trip. REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS OR SYMPTOMS! PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN THE INFO THAT I RELEASED IN MID-DECEMBER! (Since, it has been documented that vaccinated and asymptomatic folks can still spread the virus.) (Of course, in order to go on the trip you must be a NEGATIVE TEST RESULT!) I will do what I can to help with this test! The test can be a “Rapid”, “at home” test, we just want to make sure that the van ride there, and the sleeping arrangements at night are safe for everyone!
SUNDAY SCHOOL IS BACK!!!
CEC ROOM #201
(second floor of Christian Enrichment Center)
YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL is BACK!!! Sunday mornings just got a lot more exciting!!! We are beginning our YOUTH (for Middle & High School students) SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS back after the COVID break! Not only that, but we have a NEW teacher! After 35 faithful years of teaching, Brant Conner has retired his position as Youth Sunday School teacher! AND the person filling those BIG SHOES? We are pleased to announce that Kahlan Davis will be the new Youth Sunday School teacher! She is really smart, fun and enthusiastic! She also has a strong faith that she is willing to share with others! AND she has been trained by Brant over the course of a year as well! Take a moment to stop by and sit in with her one Sunday morning! You’ll be glad you did!!! See you there!
MEET AT CHURCH
MIDDLE SCHOOL SMALL GROUP WILL BE RETURNING SOON! KEEP AN EYE ON THESE ANNOUNCEMENTS TO FIND OUT WHEN!
These small groups are designed to be different than our Sunday Night Programs. Instead of wild activities or discussing issues, “Small Group” meet simply to share about how your week is going and to have a few people pray for you and your life. You will in turn get to pray for others and hear about their week as well.
WHAT DO WE DO?
When you meet you are asked to share 3 questions:
What was the HIGH POINT of your week?
What was the LOW POINT of your week?
Where did you see GOD during the week?
HOW DO I JOIN A SMALL GROUP?
Its pretty simple, but it is very meaningful to those who attend and you have an invitation to join a small group as well. Contact Rodney (336) 906-3036 and he will help you find the perfect fit for you in a small group! Hope to see you there!
