Missions Christmas Project – The Missions team would like to raise up to $5,000.00 for our Christmas project this year to help send a new generator to Nyankunde, East DRC for the compound where Lary and Sheryl live with up to 5 other MAF families. The generator provides power to supply the houses and hangers with power. This allows them to run their communications and to have running water in the houses. We have raised $4,103.00, so far.
Copies of John’s Gospel from The Pocket Testament League are available on the foyer table. These are a Christmas edition, great to hand out to those you meet this Christmas season. Visit www.ptl.org for more information on sharing Christ with those around you.
Delays and Cancellations – It’s that time of year when the weather could turn bad. If we have any delays or cancellations on a Sunday morning you will be notified by text message and by email. If you are not on our cancellation text message or email and would like to be, please contact the church office. We also will have it posted on our website at www.pvbible.com or listen to WBCL or WFRN radio stations. Also, if Warsaw Community Schools are closed or cancelled on Wednesdays due to bad weather, we will not have Wednesday night activities at the church.
Thank You – Thank you for all the prayers the last few years as Gloria declined in health. The acts of kindness and the way everyone treated us no matter how much the Alzheimer’s effected Gloria was really appreciated. Thank you also to all those that brought food. Clayton Kerchenfaut
