I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; behold, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O LORD. I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart; I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness from the great congregation. As for you, O LORD, you will not restrain your mercy from me; your steadfast love and your faithfulness will ever preserve me!(Psa 40:9-11 ESV)

Kirkbride ESL Classes
God continues to give us opportunities to partner with Kirkbride School, one of our local K-8 schools. And we still need a few more volunteers who can help support the much needed ESL (English as a Second Language) program. If you are interested in helping, please review the flyer at the Info table and get in touch with Claire.

We are going to kick off our small groups again starting on January 15th. Pastor Jeff will be hosting each small group in January starting at 7pm and doing a survey of the book of Acts looking at “What Creates Missional Movement”.

On January 27th from 5pm-7pm we will be having our annual church family meeting. We will be laying out our plans for 2019 and prayerfully dedicating this coming year to the Lord and His mission. Please mark this date down on your calendar, so that you can prioritize attending.
