The flowers in the front of the chapel were donated by the family of Lucille Minekime, whose funeral service was held here yesterday.
We would like to express our deepest thanks to all of you for the generous gift we received this Christmas season. We are thankful that God has given us such a loving and supportive church family. May he grant us all a special and blessed New Year together. With much love, Alice, Derek, Katie, Rebekah, Joel and Owen.
Next week we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper. If you would like to participate but are unable to be here, see Derek or one of the Elders to arrange another time. Don’t be shy about taking full advantage of this important gesture of unity with Christ and his body. A fellowship meal following the service is NOT scheduled at this time. Laura and Olive are on setup.
