Pledge Cards
It’s never too late to turn it in!  With the loss of our rental income from the preschool, it’s even more important to know if we can count on you this year.  Thank you for your faithfulness.

BrainStorming with Bo   This Sunday we resume “Expanding the Conversation.”  No prep necessary.  Soon we’ll  begin a study using the book, Acts: A Theological Commentary on the Bible, by Willie James Jennings, if you want to obtain a copy.

ImBible Study   We resume on Wednesday, Jan 13, at 7:00 pm with a study using the books, Acts: A Theological Commentary on the Bible, by Willie James Jennings and “Acts (N.T. Wright for Everyone Bible Study Guides)”.   There will be members of Westside UMC joining us on Zoom!  It should be a rousing study.

Wednesday Morning Check-in  Back next Wednesday, Jan 13, at 10:00 am for a half hour of peace.  We’re doing a practice in using prayer beads, but don’t worry – you don’t have to pray aloud!  Spend 30 minutes to bring your week back on track.

The Stitchuation
Cold weather has returned and, with it, the need for warm clothing for the homeless.  If you knit or crochet, please consider making a gender-neutral hat, scarf or gloves for Blanchet House.  Adult sizes only. Please email the office if you need access to the building to donate items.
