This Sunday

Hey everyone,

I just want to send out a message about this coming Sunday. I'm planning a special message--different from the normal style and a lot more introspective. I'm hoping that many of us who've been through so much of this Matthew series will be there because we're going to ask some really important questions.

ALSO: don't forget to pick up your crosswalk info this Sunday and get started finding sponsors for this year's event!

Cross Walk This Year

Hello everyone!

I just want to update you on the status of the Cross Walk. This year we're going to support God's Ministry in La Gonave. Our goal is to raise money for the new school in Bella Vie.

I'm including a link to Laura Dalla's new website. People can donate via the website. Also, this Sunday we'll have handouts and sponsor sheets for you to take.

Here is the website: You can also go to our own website and click the "Cross Walk" link to get to Laura's website.

Urgent Prayer Request

Got this from Kathy Umberger today:

I talked to Bonnie Ford today, she asked to please put the Armes in our Prayers. Travis Armes and his wife are expecting a baby boy in 5 mos and they have just learned he has two holes in his heart. They are praying that these holes will close on their own. For those that do not know the Armes, Gary, Travis' father was the Sr. Minister at First Christian when most of us attended.

Please remember the family in your prayers.

Carry in meal for the Deckards

APPRECIATION CARRY IN MEAL FOR LARRY AND SUSAN DECKARD: Next Sunday, 02/13/2011 following our morning worship service, we will show our appreciation and love for the Deckards as they begin a new chapter in their lives.

Anne Foster (678-965-6743) has graciously agreed to coordinate the event. She will need help with set up and clean up as well as providing food for the meal. If every family will bring enough to feed their own family, there should be more than enough food. This includes a main dish and side dishes. Anne will provide the drinks and a cake.

This is not a good-bye, but rather, a thank you to the Deckards for their sacrifice, dedication and service to the Lord.

Michael Foster's Father Update

Got this message from Lorie today:

Michael called me today around 1pm and said his dad made it out of surgery and everything went well. He's in recovery. He thanked everyone for their prayers.

Lorie Short's Uncle

Just got this update from Lorie:

My uncle's having surgery today. They were supposed to start at 5am. It will probably take most of the day. He's having a valve replaced and 2 stints replaced/fixed that are blocked. Mom went to the hospital yesterday and saw Aunt Catherine. She was in a daze, she said. Mom will go by tonight and see how things are going. Thanks for all your prayers. His name is Edward Washburn and the surgery is at a hospital in Spartanburg, SC.
