January 15th News and Notes


We will have our cross generational Sunday School class, cross-gen, following worship this Sunday, January 19th.

Annual meeting and chili/dessert cook-off

It is that time of year again!  On January 26th, we will have our annual meeting!  This will coincide with our chili and dessert cook-off to raise money for our Mars Hill mission trip.  Make your best chili or your best dessert and we will vote with our money.  Each dish will have a bag where people can vote by placing money in the bag.  The dessert and the chili that raise the most money will be declared the winner!

De-greening the Church

We will meet on Monday, January 20th at 10:00am to undecorate from Christmas.  Anyone who is available to help would be appreciated!

Adult Education

On the fourth Monday of each month, we will gather at 7:00 for Adult Education.  We will discuss what we have read in the “Bible in a year” program the previous month.  The first meeting will be the 27th.

Snow Procedures

As we head into the season of inclement weather, here is a reminder of our inclement weather policy for worship.
