Winter’s here with its ice and snow.
But it doesn’t last forever we know
We enjoy the cool and nippy air
The warm and furry things we wear=-
The plants need this cooler season to rest
To make spring’s entrance the very best.
It’s a time for reflection, for planning ahead.
A time for knitting, for books to be read
For inspiring music and dreaming dreams
That make life better than it seems
For a fireplace with glowing fire
And dreaming of our heart’s desire,
That time when we’ll go to our home above
And live forever in the glow of God’s love.
We need some time away from life’s frantic pace
To think about the wonder of God’s grace,
For moments to spend in fervent praise
An excellent way to spend our days,
So let us always be aware
That you love us, are always there.

WELCOME to our missionaries John and Donna McAdams who are speaking today during Sunday school and church. We are excited to hear what they have to share about their ministry in the “Great Country”. Donna’s book, “Dragon Ride,” will be available on a donation basis. Be sure to visit their display in the foyer. All Sunday School classes will meet in the library. After church you are all invited downstairs for Lunch and an opportunity to visit with the McAdams.

Coming Next Sunday. Valentine’s Praise and Testimony Service. In this month dedicated to expressing love to each other, this will give each of us a chance to publicly express our love and appreciation and gratitude to God for all that He has done for us in Jesus. What do you think God would like you to tell your church family?

LADIES – Tuesday Helping Hands will be gathering at 9:00 A.M. to work on projects for Africa. Hope you can come join us as we have a great time of fellowship. Bring a brown bag lunch. See you Tuesday!
