Per Capita money goes to the costs of holding General Assembly including paying for travel, room and board of commissioners and advisory delegates. This money also goes to help maintain our historical records. This year's Per Capita amount is $40 per member. If you would like to help offset this expense for the church please mark your donations as "per capita".

The Trustees will be meeting on Monday, February 11th at 6:00 p.m. in the Seekers Room.

Confirmation Classes are still taking place with Cheri Stone and Kara Talbott as the leaders. This month's classes will be held on February 10th, 17th, and 24th starting at 9:00 a.m. in the Seekers Room.

The Session will be meeting on Wednesday, February 20th in the Library.

Our Worship Chair, LuAnne Allen, has been very hard at work finding ministers and speakers to fill our pulpit these past Sundays and we would like to thank her for her for this. Below is a tentative schedule of ministers and speakers for the upcoming weeks.

          February 10th – Mr. Nyle Riegle                     

          February 17th – Mr. Daniel Frye

          February 24th – Ms. Debbie Martindale

          March 3rd – Rev. Alan Finnan

Our church will be hosting Communion Services as Autumn Trace and Glenburn on Wednesday, February 13th. This is a wonderful outreach to those who are unable to attend worship services. Volunteers are always welcome to come help with the services and visit with the residents.

The Women's Association will be meeting on Thursday, February 14th at the home of hostess Bobbi Vandeventer at 1:00 p.m. The co-hostess will be Doris From with devotions given by Rose Floyd.

This year's Women's Association books are available on the narthex podium or you may pick yours at the meeting.

It is a little hard to believe that in four short weeks we will be entering the season of Lent. Even though the Greene County Ministerial Association dissolved the local churches will be continuing to host Lenten Breakfasts, Good Friday Service, and Easter Sunrise Service.

Lenten Breakfasts:                                                                          Holy Week Schedule:

       March 9th – Holy Name Catholic Church                                            April 19th – Good Friday Service

       March 16th – First Christian Church                                                                7:00 p.m. - 1st Baptist Church

       March 23rd – Word of Life Fellowship

       March 30th – No Lenten Breakfast                                                      April 21st – Easter Sunrise Service

       April 6th – Presbyterian Church                                                                  7:00 a.m. – Methodist Church

       April 13th – First Baptist Church

On Saturday, March 16th, our church will be hosting Soup on Saturday. This is a great chance to share the love of God to others in our community. Volunteers are needed to provide soup, sandwiches, desserts, and drinks. Please see the sign-up sheet on the narthex podium.


Last Sunday, the youth of our church collected non-perishable food and monetary donations during the Souper Bowl of Caring. So far we have 128 food items donated. Last year we had 120 food items donated, so we have surpassed last year's score for food.


We will still be accepting donations this coming Sunday, February 10th, let's see if we can increase our score a bit more. All food and monetary donations will go to support the local food pantry at the Baptist Church.
