Church Family Update...

  • Sunday Morning Bible Class…. Dave Bruner is currently leading the Sunday morning Bible class at 9:00am. The topic for this study is Spiritual Growth.

  • Deacons… This morning we will go through an affirmation process for those we are considering as deacons over the coming two years. We are blessed to have 17 men who want to serve, but each requires the support of over half of the congregation to be placed in this important role.

  • Holiday Church Office Hours… The church office will be closed December 24, 25, 31 and January 1. Jeff will be visiting family but all of the elders and Michael will be on call for any special needs that may arise during the holiday season. We pray for the safety for all who are traveling and God’s blessing on those who will continue to battle illness over this time of joy.

  • Looking Forward to some key dates in 2019… Deacon Installation, Jan. 6; The Annual Chili Cook-Off, Jan. 27; Ministry Fair, Feb. 24; Sunrise Service, Apr. 14; Summer Spectacular (used to be called Bible Sports Camp), July 22-24; Mission Trip to Salmon Arm, Canada, August 22-25.

  • Our next opportunity to help with Family Promise is December 16 through the 22… However, this will be a different kind of Family Promise week. Since our Christian school is still operating in our building that week, Family Promise will be using another church building but staffed by us. We will need the same kind of volunteers to stay overnight, prepare meals and so on, but it will be held at the First Baptist Church (424 E Wallace Ave.) in Coeur d’Alene. You can sign up to help on the big easel in the lobby.

  • CCS Christmas Program… This Tuesday, Dec. 18th, 6:30pm. Get into the Christmas spirit and support our Christian School!

  • The Giving Tree is up… Please fill out a form if you have a child that you would like to bless with one of these festive Christmas Boxes this year! We can accept applications until this Wednesday, Dec. 19. Look on the Welcome Desk. If you want to participate the cost is $25 per box.
