STEWARDSHIP THOUGHTS–1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” God owns everything, including our very selves. We were made to serve Him and glorify Him and will never truly be happy or find our fulfillment until we learn that lesson. Jesus has redeemed us and brought us back into the Kingdom of the Father–and that has set us free to serve Him in joy, generosity, liberty and faith.”
LIFE QUOTES: “The church must be reminded that it is...the conscience of the state...It must be the guide and the critic of the state...If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
GROCERY KART RECEIPTS Just a reminder to everyone who is saving Grocery Kart receipts, to please not alter the receipt in any way. In order for them to be counted and valid, they need to have the date on the receipt. This is a great way for the school to obtain items!
EVERY ONE HIS WITNESS (E1HW) Have you ever wondered what to say to a neighbor who is struggling with his teenage daughter? Have you struggled to find words to say to a friend whose marriage is falling apart? These are just two examples of the opportunities God gives you to be his witness to others. You are called to be his witnesses (Acts 1:8). But what does that mean? Does it mean that you should be knocking on doors in your neighborhood to speak to others about Christ? Does it mean that you have to join an evangelism team to call on folks who visit our church? Well, perhaps, but everyone is a witness, whether a good or bad one. Every One His Witness is a new tool, developed by Rev. Mark Wood to help Christians learn ways that they can share the Gospel naturally with people they encounter every day. E1HW will be offered in two parts, Saturday, February 3 and Saturday, February 10, from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm in the fellowship hall. This first class is limited to 12 participants, so register early to guarantee your place in this training. If you have questions, contact Pastor Schnare.
NEW RELOADABLE SAFEWAY CARDS ARE NOW AVAILABLE! They work just like the previous cards but now offer you the most secure non-chip system available. Purchase them from the scrip program for $5 and load up to $500 on them in store and earn 5% for the school. If you are still using an old reload card, you will need to get a new one as soon as possible because the old ones will be discontinued.
ALUMINUM CANS–Please save your aluminum cans and bring to the school. There are containers on the east side of the school. We collected 1,513.5 pounds in 2017, a total of $454.07. Every little bit helps support our school! Thank you!
