I hope you can attend these special events:
Coming Sunday, February 5th – “The 1948 Prophecy Of Israel’s Restoration To The Land.”
This will be the long-awaited message that I have been promising you on this incredible prophecy out of the Old Testament. Please put this on your calendar now and be sure to invite your friends to come to church with you for this one. Attached you will find the “Digging Deeper” Bible study notes that go along with the message, I encourage you to work through them.
Annual Church Business Meeting – This Sunday Following Church!
Our Annual Church Business Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 5th just 15 minutes after the morning service ends. We will be asking church members to affirm the following elders and deacons for 2023:
- Elders: Harry Abel, Jim Brown, Kip Johnson, Bob Pedigo, and Tom Trammel
- Deacons: Phil Bogs, Bryan Davidson, Frank DeSpain, Roger Dunithan, Les Kaye, Pat Myers, Bill Steevens, Max Thompson, and Desmond Hangana.
We will also be asking the church membership to approve our 2023 Church Budget which will be for the amount of $360,000.00. After 16 years the elders have also completed revisions on our Church Constitution and Statement of Faith. The purpose of revising the Statement of Faith is fourfold: 1) Clarifying issues that aren’t written clearly and that we have been challenged on in the past; 2) Making the document rock solid doctrinally; 3) Making the Statement of Faith easy to read and understandable for the lay person; and 4) Making a document that is almost worshipful in reading. The meeting will have a Q & A time before voting.

I hope you can join us at 10:00am Fridays in the Passover Room for “Foundations – A Study In Systematic Theology.”
Ladies Night Out
Our next “Ladies Night Out” is scheduled for 6:00pm this Friday in the Passover Room. We hope you can join the ladies for an evening of fun and fellowship.
Our next “Men’s Breakfast” is scheduled for this Saturday at 9:00am. Men are invited to come expecting delicious food, great fellowship and a lively time of discussion.
A Sweet Moment
Pastor Larry Waggoner discovered the gentleman who stands in the middle of the isles near the screen during our worship music is doing so because he can’t see the screen. The only way he can see the words and join in the worship is to move close. When Larry found this out, he said the Lord laid upon his heart to go and worship next to him so that he wouldn’t be alone. Thank you Pastor Larry for being sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
I look forward to seeing you this week. Have a blessed week in the Lord as you walk closely with Him!
In Christian Love,
Michael J. Barnard
