Our 4th Quarter Business Meeting will be held tonight, Wednesday, January 28, beginning at 6:15 pm. Minutes and other reports have been emailed to the membership for review prior to the meeting. We’ll have dinner as usual at our regular dinner time of 5:30 pm. Please plan to join us.

The monthly Men’s Breakfast will be this Sunday at 8:00 am.

On Sunday, February 1, we will have a covered dish dinner immediately following worship to welcome our guests from Arkansas. Please plan on bringing food for your family, plus a little more, and enjoy the fellowship. The Hostess Committee is handling the drinks for our lunch.

This Sunday, Mollie Palmer and Stacy Henderson will be with us for worship, exploring the ways we are called to be the body of Christ and telling us about what is going on in Helena-West Helena, AR. Mollie is the Director of Together for Hope Arkansas and Stacy is the Assistant Director. This is the program that hosts the annual All Church Challenge where our congregation has participated for the past three summers. You won’t want to miss this first hand experience of hearing how God is working through Crosscreek and our partners. It will also be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate communion together with our sisters from a few states over.

After worship, we will host a covered dish luncheon where Mollie and Stacy will be able to visit and answer any questions you may have about their work and how we can engage in even deeper ways with God’s ministry there. I hope you will make a special effort to be there this weekend and be blessed by the experience.

Interested in singing in the Crosscreek Sanctuary Choir? January is a great time to join! The Sanctuary Choir would love to fill the Choir loft on Sunday mornings with men, women, and Youth who love to sing. Reading music is not required–just a love for praising God through music! Please see Dixie Ford if you are interested.

The Youth Room is getting a makeover! What began with a fresh coat of paint is continuing with other much needed updates. Interested in helping? Here are a couple of ways you can help make the Crosscreek Youth Room a welcoming space for our Youth: 1) Donate gently used furniture. We are looking especially for bookshelves, crates, side tables, and a love seat cover. 2) Come help us fix up the room! On Saturday, February 7, join the Youth in the Youth Room for a couple of hours of sweat (but hopefully no blood or tears), as we makeover the Youth Room together. See Dixie Ford for more details.

As you might remember, last year Brandon solicited some help in writing daily Lenten devotionals for our very special Crosscreek Lenten Devotions. It’s that time of year again, and your help is needed and always appreciated. If you would be interested and willing to write some of your thoughts into a short devotional, please let Brandon know by the end of this week. You can write as many, or as few, devotions as you like. It will certainly be a welcome treat to those of us who use this document during Lent.

Brandon’s email is brandon or bwhudson.
