from Pastor Michael

My community family and friends,

I sure have missed many of you as the snow kept you guys away last week.  Just wanted to pass on some love and a bit of encouragement.

This Sunday we will finish our series called LIES.  I'm excited to share what's on my heart, and I hope you are excited to come worship and to interact with the message too.  Valentine's day is a couple weeks away which means we will talk about love in the coming weeks.

If you have never taken the Community 101, the coming weeks will offer you this opportunity.  We will also celebrate baptism toward the end of the month of February.  The weeks ahead are full of great things!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all those who have taken part in our Challenge to raise $25,000 for our Vision Fund and the roof on the office building at the new campus.  We are above $10,000 at present.  Please consider giving if you haven't yet.  I have noticed that some of our folks have been giving to the Vision Fund and not the general offering.  This is tough as it puts us low in the funds we need for daily operations of the church.  Continue to be faithful, and remember that you can give online by clicking THIS LINK, you can mail your gift to the church or give on Sunday.

We have lots of opportunities to share our faith and demonstrate the love of God by meeting needs, stopping to pray, serving in various ways and simply going out of your way to be kind to those you come in contact with.  Pray for the Winter Warming Shelter, our Saturday evening REACH ministry meals, upcoming clothes closet and more that is coming us.

I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.  Spend some extra time with God as we prepare for Worship and prepare to serve even more.  2016 is off and running.  One month down.  Eleven more to go!

With GOD as my guide,

--- James 1:5

There’s more to being a Christian than just getting by.  Many of the people you and I deal with are just surviving.  Go...
