Sunday Services:  On Sunday, January 6th, Pastor Torrey’s message will be “Living 2019 Day-by-Day”, and you can read Luke 2:25-38 in preparation for the message. 

Communion and Benevolence Fund:  In 2019, Benevolence Fund donations will always be collected on the first Sunday of the month.  Communion will be celebrated once a month, but it will not always be on the first Sunday of the month.

New Our Daily Bread Devotionals:  We just discovered that the large-print editions (January–March) that were delivered last month were printed with articles from 2018.  Our Daily Bread Ministries has sent new January–March devotionals, and we encourage you to pick up a corrected devotional at Connections.
