projects and one of their favorites is the Stamp Ministry. Used postage stamps are collected, trimmed, sorted and sent to a clearing house in

wonderful way to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ!

Feb. 16 SAT 8:00 AM Men's Breakfast & Fellowship. The men of the church have bonded together to not only "break bread" and socialize once a month, but to be the
spiritual leaders of our body of believers. God has called us to stand up in these difficult times and be counted upon to bring the "good news" of Jesus
to our community. Come join us!
Feb. 21 THU 7:00 PM Official Board Meeting. The newly elected board will meet for the first time this evening and tackle the agenda for the year 2019. There is much work
to be done, so we'll be working hard to make wise choices concerning the direction of our outreach to the community, but also the spiritual needs of
our congregation. Your prayers on behalf of the board are appreciated.
Feb. 23 SAT 5:30 PM Supper & A Movie. As you will notice, we've moved this event to a different day. In order to accommodate those who are facing a challenging work
week, and may not want to come out Sunday night, we're going to try holding Supper & A Movie on Saturdays to see if it catches on. Our 1st movie
of the New Year is, "Unbroken: Path to Redemption." It's the story of the life of Louis Zamperini, the Olympic runner who was captured and tortured
during World War II. This film tells the rest of his story and it is a wonderful example of what God can do to revolutionize hearts and lives in miraculous
ways. You won't want to miss it! Oh, by the way, the food is excellent and the cost is always the same -- FREE!
Jan. 1 TUE ALL DAY New Year's Day. Happy New Year and may God richly bless you in 2019.

They've kept us well informed as to the giving for missions each month and spend numerous hours on projects such as the Stamp Ministry (which
purchases Christian curriculum for Sunday Schools in South America); Operation Christmas Child (which collected 110 shoeboxes filled with toys,
books & essentials for children all over the world -- sponsored by Samaritan's Purse); Christians in Action; Evangel Home; Trans World Radio &

Dec 15 SAT 8:00 AM Men's Breakfast & Fellowship. Someone once said: "It's pretty hard to mess up breakfast." Our men's Christmas breakfast will try not
to ruin that sentiment. We'll vary the menu a bit, but it will still taste like breakfast when we're done. The coffee's always black & hot
and the conversation lively and fun. Come on out and spend an hour or so with your brothers in Christ.
