Week of January 29

[Please note the correction to Kris Keiser’s email address below.—Webmaster]
Dear Friends,
Can you believe we are nearing the end of January already? The time to act on ‘new year’s resolutions’ passes quickly it seems. Here are some opportunities that you might want to act on:
First, our Diocesan ‘Regional Gathering’ for training and networking takes place on Friday, February 10 (beginning at 1 pm) and Saturday, February 11 (ending at noon) in Raleigh, NC.  There will be workshops on ministry training and development on Friday afternoon and then some teaching and reflection on issues of human sexuality on Saturday morning.  This event is open to all associated with our church. To find out more (and to register) please check out the diocese’s web site: www.adhope.org.
Second, in addition to our ‘Discipleship Hour’ (still not too late to join in!) there is another Home Group starting soon. If you are looking for a group that combines fellowship and study, this may be for you. Please contact Kris Keiser (krissppie@gmail.com) for more information. (Note: the group plans to meet every other Monday night).
Third, we welcomed into the world Henry Dickens last week. If you would like to ‘meet’ Henry and help out Lea Hanna and Steven by providing a simple meal, then sign up for a convenient night here: www.takethemameal.com.
Fourth, we are implementing a new plan for Hospitality sign-ups. If you would like to sign up for Hospitality, there is a new location for the sign-up sheets.  They are located on the large dry erase board in the back room off the Fellowship Hall (what used to be the “ping pong” room).  We are hoping that the larger display will make it more accessible for people to sign up and more noticeable to those didn’t know about it.  We will no longer be utilizing the online sign-up as we have in the past.
Lastly, if you are interested in signing up for the CtR Men’s Softball Team, please contact Steven Dickens at stevendickens548@gmail.com.  If you would like to order a jersey, they come in all sizes and can be ordered and paid for online at https://www.customink.com/g/mmw0-00av-y34k.
I look forward to worshiping with you all on Sunday.
