Notice to all Committees and Moderators – Friendly Reminder

PLEASE get in your annual committee report to be included in the First Presbyterian 2015 Annual report. It would be great if you would e-mail it to the office at office@firstprestrc.com. The due date to have them in is this Friday, February 5, 2016, with a distribution date of February 14, 2016. If you have any questions, please call the office at: (269) 273-9571, or e-mail me at the above stated e-mail address. I would very much like to get a “jump” on assembling this very important annual report so that it is put together with care and not “thrown together” at the last moment. I thank you in advance for your attention to this. Respectfully, Mary Lou Beyer, Administrative Assistant

Scout Sunday!!

image019.pngONLY a few more days!!!, Are you aware that the scouts would like to thank all of us for allowing them to hold their meetings here by hosting a free soup luncheon. This scrumptious soup luncheon will be served immediately following the 10:30 worship service next Sunday. I can hardly wait, because after our soup luncheon, the scouts are going to have a fund raising bake sale. And, be still my heart,…if that is not exciting enough, they will then hold a bake goods auction. (What? Really!!?!) Be careful and do NOT sit too close to me during the auction because I am looking at the same baked goods you are!!!

Dear God,
I read the bible. What does begat mean? Nobody will tell me.

Love, Alison
