CASTING CALL from Pastor Barry for LENTEN
Leading up to Easter the Sundays of Lent begin on March 10. Our worship service on each of those Sundays will feature a "visit" from someone who met Jesus on Jesus' way to the cross. I am looking for people who will memorize (or read with feeling) monologues (and one dialog) of the following people:
March 10 - Mary, the mother of Jesus
March 17 - The Man Born Blind - John 9
March 24 - The Woman at the Well - John 4
March 31 - Thomas
April 7 - 2 Centurions - Two Male actors/readers - It helps if you have your own helmet.
April 14 - Palm Sunday - Girl in the Courtyard confronting Peter about being a disciple of Jesus
April 21 - Easter - Cleopas, meeting the resurrected Jesus on the road to Emmaus
Let me know who you want to be in your stage debut at Community Church.
INCLEMENT WEATHER GUIDELINES
Please note that in the event of severe weather, Dave Thrun, Deacon Chairman, will make the decision by 8 o’clock Sunday morning (and other week day times), to cancel or move services. The basis for his decision is your safety. TV stations who have us coded are as follows: NBC-6; WBT-3; WSOC-9; and TW/Spectrum Cable News—14. The Communique or/and Phone Prayer Chain will also be activated as is possible.
FABULOUS FEBRUARY FUN NIGHT
Saturday, February 2, 5 – 8 PM
Plan now to join us for a fun evening as we fellowship together with food and games. We will have a Soup and Salad Potluck. A variety of board games will be set up to play as individuals or in teams. For those who want more active games, corn hole and pickle ball will be available. Come play an old favorite or learn a new game.
JANUARY BIBLE VERSE
“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.” Ephesians 5:1-2
HAPPY BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK TO THE FOLLOWING:
None this week
FROM YOUR ELDERS:
We are in the process of shuffling Care Group members. This is in response to suggestions from the congregational meeting, and the Elders feel this may be a good time to do so. The rearrangement of groups and group members will give everyone the opportunity to minister and share with those they may not have been able to do so should the groups continue as is. We ask you to be in prayer for the Elders and our Church as we implement this change in the next couple of months. Please contact any of the Elders if you have comments or questions regarding this change.
FROM YOUR MISSIONS BOARD:
Updated missionary prayer pamphlets and new Missions Board meeting minutes will be available at the mission table in the sanctuary this Sunday.
FROM YOUR PASTOR SEARCH COMMITTEE:
We continue to meet and prepare for candidate interviews. This is a critical process since the number of candidates will be reduced to 1 or 2, based on the interviews. Pray for the Committee as they review and validate questions for each candidate. Pray for the candidate, Committee members, and church calendars to align and permit the conduction of the interviews. Pray for the leading of the Holy Spirit and the Committee to be receptive to His desires for our future pastor.
