GOOD NEWS CLUB at Prairie Lake Elementary School  We continue to look for additional team members for our GNC team – especially men.  If you have a couple of hours on Friday after- noons available, and want to be a part of this incredible harvest opportunity, please contact Donna Rodgers to get more information.

S.O.A.P.ING SCRIPTURE IN JANUARY  Remember that in the month of January, as we study the book of Colossians, we are going to take some time each week to S.O.A.P through the passage in advance of Sunday service.  Then come each Sunday prepared to share what the Holy Spirit has spoken to you through God’s Word.  Here’s the rest of the January schedule.

              January 29 – Colossians 2:1-15 

PRAYER CHALLENGE  We have encouraged you to participate in the 24/7 Strategic Prayer Call, specifically praying for the first 100 days of the Donald Trump presidency.  The Presidential Prayer Team (established in 2001), is offering this additional resource.  Anyone with an email address can join, and will receive a free daily “Presidential Prayer Briefing” by email with information gathered from relationships established in Washington, D.C. and inside the White House, encouraging participants to pray for trending items. In addition, participants will get a free daily devotional encouraging and inspiring their prayer life, and a free weekly e-magazine with stories and additional prayer needs for our congressional and capital leaders.
