A SERVICE FOR WHOLENESS will be held during the 10:30 am worship on Sunday, January 15. Those attending are encouraged to bring prayers for themselves and the world.
All Sunday School classes meet at 9:30 am. Children’s Worship is held for 4 year olds through 1st graders. The children depart the sanctuary following the children’s moment and meet in room 202.
The annual meeting of the congregation will be held in the church sanctuary immediately following worship on Sunday, January 22, 2017.
Per Capita literally means “by the head.” This expense is determined by Presbytery Council and paid by the church in January. Please assist the church budget by paying your per capita early in the year. Per capita for 2017 is $31.50 per active member. Per capita supports constitutionally mandated structures and committee expenses of: $20.19 – Presbytery; $ 3.81 – Synod; $ 7.50 – General Assembly. Per Capita monies made it possible for Anna Tilstra-Smith to attend GA last year as well as getting the necessary work of each governing level accomplished.
MISSION HELP – Care package organizing for TH Homeless Census. Help is needed to put together care packages of clothes and hygiene items for the homeless at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church on Sunday, Jan. 15 immediately following worship. These will be distributed on January 25 during the census. Additional information about the census event will be provided and volunteers are sought. For more information, contact Josh Powers (jopowers@indstate.edu).
CLCA will sponsor a 5th Sunday lunch on January 29th following worship. It will be a birthday celebration for all, with a birthday table for each month of the year featuring a birthday cake. Bring a side dish to share to go with Italian Beef sandwiches – NO desserts! You will sit at the table of your birthday month for lunch and fellowship.
