Challenges for 2018

As the new year begins, its a chance to try something new or to try something again. Here's a few ideas for 2018 -

1.  Visit a shut-in. Just give them a call and stop by. The winter days are long and a visit means a lot. Don't make it a big production or worry what to bring. Bringing yourself will be the most valuable thing of all.
2.  Come back to church. Has life covered up your Sunday mornings with events and obligations? Mark an appointment with God on the calendar and come back. We miss you! 
3.  Invite someone to come with you to church. What do you enjoy about Sunday? The study, the music, the sermon, the traditions, the friendly faces, the food? Whatever it is, tell them and invite them to share it with you. Then take them out to lunch. 
4.  Try something new. Never listen to contemporary music? Or heard it and did not like it? Find a radio station and give it a try. Or listen on the internet. Never read Presbyterian Today? There are many back issues under the parlor bulletin board. Pick one up.  
5. Interested in checking out the Food Bank and just never have? Mark a Saturday on your calendar and come at 4:30 pm to help. We're there every Saturday and you are always welcome. 
6. Check out a Bible study. We offer several here at the church. There are also many free ones online. 
7.  Take time to disconnect from your electronics and use that time to reconnect with God, friends and family.




Church Info:

LIGHT YOUTH PROGRAM: We are in need of adult helpers for Summer LIGHT. If you are available, please let Carolyn Gibeaut know. We have the teachers and lesson plans but need another adult to join us. This allows the regular teachers to get a break on the weeks that they are not teaching. So please check your calendar and consider helping with this important church ministry.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL: Skipper Rosemary Anderson is leading the VBS crew through another exciting VBS experience. Vacation Bible School is coming June 18-22 from 9 am until noon. Ages 3 through grade 6. Families can register by calling the church or online. Keep an eye on the clothesline in the parlor as we'll be posting some needed supplies for this exciting yoyage.

MISSION TRIP: The Mission Trip group will be leaving for Point Pleasant, WV June 17 and will return on June 23rd. Please pray for a safe, productive trip for our mission trip participants Shane and Travis Manring, Paige Erdman, Jim Kaufman and his granddaughter Payton Kaufman. They will be joining teams from the Dublin and Marysville Presbyterian churches in sharing the opportunity for discipleship by partnering with those in need whose lives have been devastated by natural disasters.


BIBLE STUDY OPPORTUNITIES:  Monday Night Bible Study gathers together Monday evenings at 6:45 pm to learn about Romans - The Letter that Changed the World. Christian Conversations meets Sunday morning at 9:15 am with Frank and Jerry Smith leading the group. Ladies' Bible Study meets Sunday mornings at 9:15 am and the Men's Bible Study meets the 2nd and 4th Saturday mornings at 8 am. Both groups are using the "Not a Fan" Bible study.

GENTLE SPIRIT SUPPORT GROUP: Are you or a family member struggling emotionally with cancer and its treatments or life after treatment? Come join Gentle Spirit, a Christian emotional and spiritual support group for help during this difficult time. Reverand Alice and Beth Beach, both cancer survivors, are co-facilitating this group at the montly meeting. There will be a light supper donated by Der Dutchman, a time of sharing, fellowship, a short Biblical meditation and prayer. See the calendar or call the office for the next scheduled meeting.
