Here's what's happening for the week of January 11, 2015:
1. This Sunday, after worship and during coffee time, we will have a Valentine's Banquet meeting: If you are going to provide entertainment, please come prepared with details about what you will be doing and whether you will need any special equipment, etc.; We will be firming up teams of helpers for setup, serving, cleanup, etc. so we can match tasks with people; we will make firm decisions about decorations and food. Our next meeting will be on the 25th to touch base and make sure that we are on track.
2. Next Sunday, the 18th, we will be savoring turkey soup, prepared using the leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Traditionally, we each bring a sandwich, with a little extra to share, but you are welcome to enjoy the soup with just a few crackers. Pastor Wim will be presenting a forum about Church Growth in Wedgwood. This presentation will review interesting current realities facing all churches, with particular interest on the demographics of the Wedgwood Neighborhood. Questions and discussion about how the information can shape decisions by our congregation will be included throughout the hour. (If the Seahawks are playing at the same time, the forum may be postponed.)
3. Monday, the 19th, is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and there will be a special worship service at New Beginnings Christian Fellowship, starting at 6:00 p.m. The church is located at 19300 - 108th Avenue SE in Kent - a short distance east of Hwy 167. You may want to carpool with someone, as it will be after dark.
4. Ongoing, the Sermon Discussion group will start at 12:20 on Sundays, except on potluck Sunday.
