Mission of the Month:  The spring Sr. High Youth event, GENESIS, is our emphasis this month. We want to assure that all of our youth can be blessed to attend. This event has had a major impact on the lives of many walks of faith, leaders and youth alike.

CONNECT:  We will resume on Weds. evening, Jan. 10.  Dinner at 5:30, with Children's, Jr. High and Adult classes following.  There are also Sr. High youth who come to have an extra time to hang out, if your youth would like to join in.

“GAME ON!”  Saturday, Jan. 27, 6:30 p.m. will be some great fellowship and fun; board and card games galore!  Please let Sheryl E. know if you are coming by signing up in the Family Life Center.  This will help to know how many tables to set up.  If you have a new game to share, come ready to teach others.  Let’s have fun!

Painting Class will be Tuesday, January 16 and next Tuesday, the 23.  If you have never attended, you should come just for the fun and try it out!  It is so worth the $12 per person for the materials and the friendship!

 Sub Sale Time!  The youth will be taking orders for subs throughout January.  The Costs are Touchdown Subs - $5/10 for $40, Kick-off Subs - $4/10 for $35.

Flowers for church:  There are many dates open this month and throughout the year.  You can sign up to honor someone or to celebrate a special occasion.  The calendar is on the bulletin board in the Family Life Center.  Thank you.

 Siloam Christian Church is so grateful to have a place of worship and prayer.  They spent extra holiday worship times in prayer and praise, seeking God’s Will for our world.  This is truly a ministry of God to the Kingdom of our Lord.

 Compassion Sponsorship:  Please pray for our young friend from Bangladesh, affectionately referred to as “Z”. Any notes of encouragement and pictures you want to send, please bring to the office.  His picture is on the narthex bulletin board.
