*THANK YOU RECEPTION FOR DEBBIE HALVOSON & KRISTINE JUNG
We say thanks and farewell to Debbie Halvorson who has served as the Nursery Coordinator since September 2013. Debbie has worked with a team of care-givers to provide a safe, nurturing, loving, Christ-centered place for our infants and toddlers. We also say thank you to Kristine Jung who has served as the JK Kids Director since April 2013. Kristine, with help from her ministry team, brought Christ’s love and joy to children & families through Sunday School, VBC, Roller-skating, Trunk or Treat, the Easter Egg Hunt, Date Night with a Purpose, Carols, Cookies & Cocoa and Advent Art Night. While Kristine has stepped down from JK Kids, she continues her position as our JK Preschool Director. Linda Farnsworth has been hired as the Interim JK Kids Coordinator and will be working with the JK Kids Team to carry on the work of the ministry. Please stop by to say thank you to Debbie and Kristine and to extend a warm welcome to Linda.

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY | WINTER-SPRING 2020
A 16-WEEK STUDY OF JAMES WITH BETH MOORE
Even James, Jesus’ own brother, started out as a skeptic. Join us as we learn how one glimpse of the resurrected Savior turned an unbeliever into a disciple. We’ll kick off the study with a Coffee Social & Winter Tea on Monday evening January 13 at 7pm and on Thursday morning January 16 at 9am. Come pick up a study guide ($20) and get acquainted with your group. Need more information? For Monday groups, contact Joanie Brown at hotwords@comcast.net and for Thursday groups contact Della Hoag at della.hoag@gmail.com.
