Dear Friends,

I trust you are staying warm on this overcast, cool Friday.

As the Lord’s Day, Sunday January 27 approaches, a few items of note between us:

Adult Sunday School begins at 9:00 a.m. in Room #4. Jill Haus continues her study entitled “The Other.” As we look ahead in the topical study Sunday School class, the following is the schedule for February:

Sunday, February 3, Denominational Giving by SGPC: Phil Lacy

Sunday, February 10, “The Other”: Jill Haus

Sunday, February 17, Local Giving by SGPC: Phil Lacy

Sunday, February 24: Introduction to Comparative Religions: Rush Pierce

Following worship on this Sunday, we have a potluck Luncheon whose theme is “Soup, Salad, and Desserts.” If your last name begins A-F, bring your favorite salad; G-R, bring your favorite soup or stew in a crock pot to keep it warm; S-Z, bring your favorite cornbread or dessert. Should be a fun time. Stay and enjoy the good food and fellowship!

At 3:00 p.m. this Sunday, in the Sanctuary, a presentation entitled “No Panic In Heaven: A Conversation with Corrie Ten Boom” will be presented by Marion and Terri Castleberry. Corrie Ten Boom was a Dutch citizen who hid Jews in her house from the Nazis in World War II before her family was caught and sent to a concentration camp. The presentation is free. I do hope you will come and participate.

As we look ahead, please note that the Annual Meeting of the Congregation, as required by the PCUSA Book of Order, will be held on Sunday, February 10, immediately following worship. At this meeting, the congregation will receive the church’s budget for 2019 approved by the session; vote on financial terms of call for the pastor for 2019; receive the Annual Report of the Session and its Committees for 2018; elect members to the Officer Nominating Committee (ONC) for 2019. This is a very important meeting in the life of a Presbyterian congregation. Please make every effort to attend this meeting.

Our Children, Youth, and Family ministries under the leadership of Toni Howell is growing! To house this growth, Room #3 is being renovated by our Property Committee. The work began this week and is continuing. Many thanks to all those who are dedicating their time and expertise to this exciting cause. Stop by and take a look as Room #3 comes to life for a new and dynamic purpose.

Be safe. Do good work. See you Sunday if you are able. Grace and Peace, Pastor Bill
