Some quickies before my Salvation Army Board meeting:
1. Some people have asked if the Confirmation Class is open to adults. Well, uh, it's really a time for the confirmands; however, if there is enough interest and our CE committee/team approves, I will teach a "refresher" over the summer. So if you're interested, contact somebody on CE or tell Karen;
2. Because people have asked and we don't operate in darkness (see John 3:19-21), our search/transition team to call a youth/discipling person will be making a recommendation to the session shortly. A firm job description and flexible remuneration package have been approved unanimously;
3. Yeah, the book is selling, a buzz has started in the market, watch for guests concomitant to it, and most people get it. Stay tuned to www.bnnsradio.com for more on it and click on www.sidestandup.com out of Florida for a recent interview with the author;
4. Speaking of www.bnnsradio.com, it is now averaging over 65 listeners to our 10:00 a.m. Sunday worship service. Don't forget to send in "extra mile" gifts to support it. If you would like to know more about how you can support the station, please ask Karen to send an information letter to you; and
5. The second round of Francis Chan's Crazy Love concludes next Wednesday in Deeper Discipleship (6:00 p.m. in the chapel). We will begin our look at his Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit on January 25 and then every Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. in the chapel. If you have ever wondered about the person and work of the Holy Spirit, this is for you. Remember, Jesus said it is to our "advantage" that He proceeded/rose to the Father so His Holy Spirit could remain with us. Don't miss this opportunity!
Blessings and Love!
