January 14 Week of 2 Epiphany

Greetings All,

This is the week where we truly ‘jump-start’ the New Year! Consider the groups that begin afresh this week:

Wednesday Evening Women’s Group starts up TONIGHT, January 14 beginning at 7:00 pm at the home of Temple Richardson (1510 S. Elanor Court, Norfolk VA 23508). The group begins a study of 1John this evening.

Thursday Morning Women’s Group meets tomorrow morning, January 15 beginning at 9:15 am at the church. They too begin a study on 1 John. Both these groups are open to any and all women.

Men’s Group reconvenes this Saturday, January 17 beginning at 8:30 am at the Church. We continue our practice of Morning Prayer followed by a ‘Sharing of a Life Story’ and concluding with a discussion of a chapter of Peter Walker’s book, The Jesus Way. All men are welcome and encouraged to join in.

Chinese Student and Scholar Ministry is taking a trip to the Chrysler Museum after worship this Sunday, January 18. David Snouffer tells me they have 20 Chinese students/scholars signed up already and are needing many of us to volunteer to both drive and befriend the students while enjoying the museum. If you can participate in this, please email David at da.snouffer@verizon.net.

Looking Ahead:

The ‘Mothers of Young Children’ Bible Study gathers NEXT Friday morning, January 23 at 9:30 at the church.

‘Inter-generational Family Lenten Event’ has been set for Saturday, February 21 from 4-7 pm. Mark your calendars now and plan on entering Lent through this fun and helpful evening.

I encourage you to prayerfully consider the Spirit’s prompting regarding your participation in any of these groupings. The key to the Christian life is to discern God’s voice and act on what you hear!

Look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
