Announcements for the week of January 6, 2012

Social Ministries Meeting – There is a Social Ministries meeting this week on Wednesday beginning at 6 p.m.  We will be discussing plans for the upcoming year, including special mission opportunities.  New members are welcome!

Blood Pressure Clinic -Next Sunday there will be a blood pressure clinic held in the chapel after church.  Stop by and have your blood pressure checked for free.

Special Mission – Our special mission envelopes for January are designated to help the Heart, Love, & Soul Food Pantry in Niagara Falls.  The winter months after the holidays are a time when requests for assistance typically increase, and unfortunately donations from the community typically drop off.  We hope to be able to assist Heart & Soul with a generous donation at the end of this month.  If your prayers move you to assist your neighbors in need in this way, please place your January Special Mission envelope in the offering plate any Sunday in January.  Thank you for your generosity.

Wednesday Evening Worship – If you can’t make a Sunday worship service you now have the option of a midweek service on Wednesdays at 6:30pm.
