I am looking forward to our Winterfest on Saturday, January 25. I can’t wait to see the talent show, and the live auction is always a lot of fun, thanks to the good humor of Tom Carrigan, our auctioneer. I can already taste the delicious food in the chili cook-off. Thanks to all who have contributed items for the auction, dinner, and talent for the show. I will play a medley of hymns on the saxophone, and Ed Greene, Chris Farrow, Jim Young, and I will present a funny skit followed by an old doo wop standard. Frank Breazeale will be the house keyboardist for the evening, creating a festive mood. So, I hope you will join us from 4:00 to 7:00 pm for a great time of fun and fellowship and an opportunity to raise a little money for our ministry and mission.

We are currently gathering information for the annual report, which will be presented at the annual meeting of the congregation after worship on February 9 in the fellowship hall. I want to thank everyone for their generosity in supporting our ministry in 2019 in so many ways. A special word of gratitude goes to the former Milner members whose generous financial gift made possible a lot of deferred maintenance by replacing old, worn-out heating and air conditioning equipment and making necessary repairs to the buildings. Also, the generous memorial gift made by Neill and Mary Sinclair’s daughters, Karen and Maryneil, has enabled the redecoration of the parlor, one of the most used rooms in our buildings. The decorating team, under the direction of Missy Farrow and Cheryl Anderson, has done a great job with this project and is on-track to finish soon.

Coming up on February 2 is our annual Youth Sunday. Our youth have been working hard at creating and leading a service that will highlight the discovery and use of the special gifts God has given us. We have been blessed for many years with wonderful, dedicated young people who participate in every aspect of our church. I am grateful to Shelley, our Faith Development elder, and our youth advocates for the loving leadership they provide. 

In the meantime, I trust that all is with you and yours and that you are holding up during the coldest, bleakest part of the year. But, take heart, spring is on its way. As the daylight grows a little each day, we can be assured that even though we walk through the valley of frigid temperatures, the warm breezes of spring will soon bring a rainbow of color to our grey-brown world. And the good news is that God walks with us in all seasons! I hope to see you on Saturday at the Winterfest!
