“One BARN, Two BARNS, Three BARNS Full”

ELCA World Hunger has provided us with colorful “banks” in the
shape of BARNS that we hope to fill with your “pocket change”. All
money collected will be sent to ELCA World Hunger to
purchase farm animals to benefit 3rd World Countries.
So… “One BARN, Two BARNS, Three BARNS, FULL!”
BARNS will be available on Sunday, February 13th, after the
11a.m. service. All gifts will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for sharing! Your Social Concerns Ministry Team

Valentine Family Celebration

The Evangelism Committee is hosting a special Valentine’s Evening for the whole family on Saturday, February 12th. We are going to have a few games for the family to play followed by movies. That’s right movies!

Adults will get to enjoy a date-night movie “License to Wed” while we take care of the babysitting with a children’s movie “Mulan”. Games begin at 7pm with movies at 7:30. There will be a concession stand with goodies to purchase at a small cost. Everyone is encouraged to come and enjoy a great Family Night!

February 2011 Senior Citizens Update

For our January meeting, Joe Tallent from Effingham Hospital talked about the expansion that is being added to the present facility. He pointed out the many areas of upgrading that will be taking place. The construction work should be finished in 2012.

Besides the program, 42 folks enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by Charlie & Melinda Heidt, Cheryl Pannal, and Georgia Foss. Thank you to them and everyone else who brought items to share and/or helped clean up afterwards.

Our meeting next month will be on Wednesday, February 23rd. Bill Tyson, our County Extension Director, will be our guest speaker. He always has plenty of information to share. So come on out to enjoy good social time, delicious food, and an educational program. Bring a friend!

Family Game Night

Come on out for a GREAT night with the whole family! That’s right! The whole family! There will be a game for everyone. Maybe a few of you would enjoy a great game of BINGO or some of you may want to take part in Twister. Who knows? There might be a couple of you that would like to play Candyland, Apples to Apples or even Pictionary! There are probably plenty that would enjoy some of the Wii games. If any of these interest you then we hope to see you on Friday February 25 @ 6:30. Some yummy grilled food will start the evening with games to follow. All proceeds from the meal will go to Relay For Life. So bring your appetites and your GAME FACE. It’s a night for all to come out and enjoy!
