DON’T FORGET there are still a number of church envelopes that need to be picked up.

HELP IS NEEDED: The Fort Wayne Rescue Mission has asked for help one night a month for the next five months. It is concerning serving dinner. The serving time is from 4:30-5:30. No other preparations are necessary, just to be there. This is another wonderful opportunity for us (perhaps the men’s group) to reach out in our community. Please speak to or call Dave Krocker 739-8430. the first date is January 29th.

SOUPER BOWL SUNDAY On February 7th the Food Bank will be collecting  canned soup for Souper Bowl Sunday. This is an annual event that really helps us fill the pantry. Canned soup is a staple for us, each family gets one can per family member, so you can see how fast it can go down. Any kind of soup is good, creamed soup, is very popular as well as chicken noodle and vegetable.  Thank you for all your support of the Food Bank.

PLEASE PRAY FOR: Neal Birchfield, Lydia Layden and Dave Krocker who are to be confirmed. Also, please pray for Mary Ann Krocker who will be received and Todd Townsend who is reaffirming his faith.

ATTENDANCE last Sunday was 81.
