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.

  • 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… 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.

  • Alis Castillo, the child and her family that we support in Nicaragua sent us the following note (here is the translation in English): “I hope this finds you well. I want to say ‘thank you with all my heart.’ The gifts you sent me and the money has made a big difference in my life and my family too. I am able to go to school and have supplies. I hope someday I can come to Idaho. God bless you and please know I pray for you everyday. Gracias!”

The elders wanted you to know… All of the deacon candidates were comfortably affirmed by the church last Sunday. On January 6 we will begin the New Year by celebrating these deacons, their families and installing them for their two year term of service.

May this time of year remind you of the greatest gift ever given, salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. Enjoy the holidays and contemplate how you can re-dedicate yourself in 2019. Merry Christmas, Peace on Earth, Glory to God in the Highest

Our Girls & Guys Groups will begin meeting regularly next month. These gender specific groups are open to all Middle School and High School students. Both groups will be reading and discussing similar books. The Girls Group book is called Smart Girls Guide to God, Guys, and the Galaxy, and the Guys Group book is called Guys Guide to God, Girls, and the Phone in Your Pocket. Copies of each book will be made available to all students who attend the groups. Parents are welcome to preview the books in advance… just let Jeff know you’d like to see a copy. Hope to see all our students there!
