Church Family Update...

  • ELDER SELECTION: Today the final list of men who are candidates for elders of the Dalton Gardens congregation will be announced. Next Sunday, the congregation will choose whether or not to affirm each candidate. Only members present next Sunday will be allowed to participate in the affirmation process. Each candidate must receive 75% affirmation to become an elder for a two year term beginning January 2, 2011.

  • Holiday Baskets & Giving Tree... The Giving Tree is set up in the foyer. We have numerous families receiving food baskets and children’s names on our tree. If you know of anyone else in need, please contact Patty Welter. Let’s bless as many as we can this holiday season.

  • CCS Christmas Program... Thursday, Dec. 16th, at 6:30pm.

  • Food Drive Underway... We are looking for chili, beef stew, baked beans, and any kind of jam except grape. (For some unexplained reason, “our grape jam runneth over.”)

  • Church Office Closed... December 24, 27, 28 and 31. The dates are a little unusual since Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Year’s Day all fall on weekends. Both Michael and Jeff will be working both Sundays during the holidays and you should also feel free to call either of them at home if you should have a need on one of the days when the office is closed.

  • One adult Sunday Morning Bible Class through January 9... Scott and Chris Rouse are team teaching a Bible class called “Out Live Your Life,” in the large auditorium through January 9th. Please be part of the class at every opportunity.

New Sermon Series Beginning January 9...
“The Questions of God”

DGYM News...

  • LTC News... If any 3rd-12th graders are planning to participate in LTC, you need to turn in an Event Checklist TODAY so we can start organizing our team events. We'll begin our team event practices in January. Any adults interested in helping coach an event please let Jeff know.

  • Christmas Party Lock-In... All 6th-12th graders are invited to join us for a great night of fellowship and worship as we join the teens at the Northside Church of Christ in Spokane for a fun-filled all-nighter! We'll leave the church building at 6:00pm on Wednesday, December 22 and return home on Thursday morning. See Jeff for more details.

  • Bible Bowl Practice... is meeting this Wednesday night at 5:00pm in The Barn. We’ll enjoy a delicious meal together then continue digging into the book of Revelation. Remember to study at home and bring your notebook with you on Wednesday.
