Good Morning Church Family,
 
* Wow, what a weekend we had! There is so many positives that I could share.

  • Thanks to Jim McClelland and the Missions Team for their organization and their attention to detail. Great job – Terry, Becky, Gabriela, Brandon & Connie.
  • Thanks to all the missionaries who came and presented their ministries the way you did. Your effort is greatly appreciated.
  • To now have a sanctuary that accommodates us like it does, what a treat.
  • I would have loved to hear all of the missionary’s stories, but time always seems to be an issue. Thank you so much for those of you who shared on Sat & Sun.
  • Read any & all of our Missionary Newsletters and Updates by Clicking HERE
  • So good to have Scott & Dana Clement and Tom & Renee Kindell (new missionaries to our area) join us for the convention. It was great to see the new connections which were forming.
  • I loved seeing the positive interaction between ministries.
  • Gabriela & Miguel provided Spanish translation for our Spanish speaking friends. We actually ran out of translation devices on Sunday! The house was packed.
  • Worship on Sunday, led by another of our missionaries – Thanks Ruth VK.
  • Thank you to Brenda Koenes and team for the great food and the friendly service.
  • Others of you from the church family also helped in set up and serving. Your positive attitude in the kitchen was such a delight to observe.
  • Linda Bowden, along with John & Gail Shaw not only ministered to the missionaries on the issue of discouragement, they also gave of themselves in praying for each of them individually.
  • Thank you to everyone who made this weekend possible. You turned our weekend into a huge celebration!

 * I talked with Nancy Dreiling last evening and wanted to share with you about Chuck’s “Celebration of Life” Service. The Service will be “live streamed” on the Internet on Saturday, Jan 27 @ 1:00 PM Pacific Time (For those of you in San Carlos, it will be 2:00PM) To watch the service, go to www.southreno.com, where you will see the live broadcast option. 
            While Nancy rejoices for Chuck and his new home, there is still a huge sense of loss for her and their families, so I encourage you to be praying for them today and in the days to come.
 
* Mark Mulligan – MONDAY Evening – Jan 29 @ 6:00 PM – Mark is coming back for another great evening at SCCC. He and Marcos are back from their Mission trip in Haiti. It will be a great night of stories and music from one of our favorite people. You will leave inspired and encouraged. There is no fee to attend, however we will provide an opportunity to give a love offering, the proceeds of which will be divided evenly between our church’s Benevolence fund and one of Mark’s mission events.
 
* Sue Marston’s Wednesday Morning Bible Study – Ever wondered what some of those “Words” Theologians use, really mean? Ever wonder if there’s even a practical application of them to your life? There is no longer any reason to be intimidated by the use of words which at first glance may not seem understandable. Over the next 8-10 weeks, Sue Marston will be defining and making a present day application of words like Righteousness, Sanctification, Redemption, Atonement, Justification, Propitiation, Adoption and Wisdom. This is co-ed class open to anyone who would like to come.
 
* Rotary Talk – thanks for your prayers, 34 people were in attendance at Tuesday’s meeting. It was a great opportunity to share how our church connects with the community, the things we do and the reason we do them. I shared that what we do is not a means of earning our salvation, but our motivation for doing the things we do as a church, is a love response to our God for all He has done for us. It seemed that the message was well received and it was a great opportunity to connect with people who truly care about and are making a difference in providing education for children in our community.
 
* There will be another Cookie Sunday this Sunday, Jan 28. After this, we are back on track with Cookie Sundays every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month. Thank you to all of you for the cookies and the kind service on these special days.
 
* An FYI – George & Barbara Anderson have sold their home and are moving to Green Valley. They will be leving this week and we wish them God’s best as they establish a new home in a new location.
 
* Prayer

  • Selection of new Elders and Deacons
  • Missionary of the Week: Heather Rix (Missionary Gospel Fellowship)
  • Deacon of the Week: Christie Forester – Facility/Fellowship Events

 Praying you all have a great week,
Glenn & Jeannine
