The annual meeting of the congregation will be held in the church sanctuary immediately following worship on Sunday, January 22, 2017.

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.
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.
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.
Homeless Census Need. For the Homeless Census this coming Wed., Jan. 25, food and warm clothing will be distributed. We also have a need for $5 McDonalds, Wendy’s, or Denny’s gift cards. This small thing enables a homeless person to legitimately come in and get warm and purchase a meal or coffee. You can give to Josh after church. You can also give cash if you wished to Josh and he will purchase the gift cards (and he will give you a receipt for your donation).
