NEW BIBLE STUDY
Dr. Jeremiah explains the prophecies of Daniel and what they tell us about the End of Days.
Throughout history, Babylon has been a symbol of the world's worst evils–extreme decadence, infinite cruelty, ravenous power, and implacable contention against God. And nowhere in the Bible do we get a more vivid picture of the malevolent nature of Babylon than the book of Daniel.
Teeming with prophetic markers and visions—many of which have already been fulfilled—the parallels between the world described in Daniel and the world we are living in today are positively staggering.
Dr. David Jeremiah explores the many prophecies, dreams, and visions outlined in the book of Daniel through the lens of its central characters, explains what they mean, and shows us how they apply to the world today We invite everyone to come and join us in an exciting 12-week study exploring this compelling book. The study will start Monday January 4 at 7:00 PM.
If you have any questions please contact Diane Miecnikowski.
It's not too late to join in!
The Food Council accepts non-perishable food items
all through the year - not just at holidays. If you can pick up a few
things each time you are at the grocery store, we’ll be able to help our local
food pantries help our neighbors. If you're at Costco or Sam's Club, add a case of food to your order. If you are unsure what to pick up here
are some suggestions found in a recent online article…
So What Are the Best Foods to Donate?
This year, make a healthy difference
in others' lives by giving nutrient-rich foods (a good rule of thumb: If you wouldn't
want to feed it to your family, don't give it as a donation). Start with these
• Whole grain pastas and cereals
•Nuts (like almonds and walnuts)
•Canned beans and lentils
•Fruit canned in 100% fruit juice
•Canned tuna, chicken, or salmon
•Non-hydrogenated nut butters
•Canned pumpkin or yams

SOUPER BOWL OF CARING - FEBRUARY 7, 2016 - Every year on Super Bowl Sunday, our MYF collect cans of soup and monetary donations after service that they then donate to our local food pantries – check out Souper Bowl of Caring online (souperbowl.org) to learn more about this program. At the end of service they’ll be holding big soup pots where you can place your donations – cans and monetary! Remember 100% of your donation goes directly to our local food pantries to help our neighbors.
CONFIRMATION SERVICE PROJECT - As many of you may know during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons there are many opportunities to donate food to the local food pantry, but what you may not know is that after the holiday seasons are over many local food pantries have a hard time keeping the shelves stocked. For my first service project with my mentor, Laura Perks, I would love to help those who need food all year round and not just around the holidays. Please help by bringing small items into church like cereal, can openers, and other necessities. We have listed items below most requested by our food pantries below. Please bring items to church service the 4 Sundays in February: 7th, 14th, 21st & 28th. Thank you for helping me support our local food pantry.
- Katlin Modica and Laura Perks
Toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning products, rubber spatulas, can openers (hand-held), paper plates, facial moisturizer, ChapStick, tea (reg & decaf), white rice, basmati rice, black beans, cereals (kid friendly & healthy, healthy snacks, and plastic forks, knives & spoons.
Please see the Prayer Requests link in the left navigation bar for additional information on this spiritually uplifting program.

COLLEGE CARE PROGRAM
If you have a college student, please email their current physical address at school and their most used email address to the church office. We use these addresses to keep in touch with them while they are at college (even if they are home and commute) through our College Care Program.
This program is headed up by Lynn Murphy, so you can speak with her if you have any questions. Monetary donations are accepted for this program at any time - it helps to defray the cost of the items we send them, as well as the cost of shipping.
Church Directory Update
We are in the process of putting a new church directory together (in house). If you would like a photo of you or your family included, please get it to the church office at your earliest convenience. You can email, mail, or drop it off. Thanks!
- It’s kind of like a small finger food party with family. Just a few snacks, coffee, tea, and
lemonade. See or contact Cathy McGoldrick.
