Announcements: Week of January 5

Going on our fifth year now, we will begin a new Bible study, “the Life of David through the Psalms” on Tuesday, February 4th at the Poplar House from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. every other Tuesday until May 12.  By studying the Psalms with 1 & 2 Samuel, we can analyze and determine the emotional state that was stirring within David as he faced life’s challenges. Come join us by signing the sheet in the copying room that states “Bible study:  Teacher – Dr. Chavis.”

If you would like to ride the bus to the MLK Breakfast on Monday, January 20, please sign up in the copier room. 

TEA TIME IS BACK!!  Ladies, join us TODAY, January 5, 5:00 p.m., in the Fellowship Hall.  Bring a tea bag, cup, wear comfy clothes, and come with an open mind for an engaging conversation.  Sweet treats are welcomed, but, not required. Ladies Only.  PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE TEA TIME PARTY ANNUAL EVENT WHICH IS HELD IN MARCH.  MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE TEA TIME PARTY COMING IN JANUARY 2020.
