We are looking forward to the special combined “Super Sunday” this Sunday, February 3. We are planning a service to reach and teach all ages and walks of life. We hope it will be a great blessing to all that participate! We will meet in the sanctuary for worship at 11:00 a.m. The youth will be doing a Soup and Sandwich mission trip fundraiser in the Rowe Family Life Center right after the combined morning worship service. The youth have been taking orders for sub sandwiches that you can eat at the church or take home with you. Many of you have already ordered your sandwiches, but if you have not you can call the church office to do so this week. The Youth from the church will be traveling to Louisville, Kentucky, this summer to help persons who have recently immigrated to the United States. The youth are looking forward to making a difference in the lives of all the people that they meet during that time. Summer mission trips can be a very important means of grace in the lives of those that participate. The youth will certainly be a blessing to those they minister to, but they will be blessed themselves as well. The time that they are able to spend with God and each other is a great investment in their Spiritual Lives. Through your support, you too will be planting seeds into the Kingdom of God as you help enrich the lives of our young people. We hope that you will plan on attending this special service with a special purpose. See you Sunday if we don’t see you before. In Christ’s Service,

All Things Hold Beauty Thank you, Lord, for all that you have given us. Thank you for the beauty of the universe that you created; the trees, the sky, the mountains, the rain. All things hold beauty in themselves and all are related and touch each creature of the earth. You created the rhythm and pattern of the universe in a harmony of movement, sight, and sound. Help us to appreciate your creation and to live with our eyes, ears, and hearts open to your message. Amen. (From Mohawk prayer tradition by Sue Ellen Herne, 1991.)
