Happy New Year!!

HOLIDAY SCHEDULE - Our office will be closed tomorrow for the New Year’s Day holiday.  We trust you have had a wonderful time with family and friends through this past holiday week, and will celebrate safely and enthusiastically together the beginning of 2018.  Our Staff will be back in the office for normal business hours beginning Tuesday, January 2nd.

PRAYING IN 2018 - Remember, the most important thing we can do for ourselves, our families, our local church, our community, our country and our world is to pray.  Pray every day!  And keep in mind the next two opportunities to  join together in prayer – 24/7 Prayer Initiative on Sunday, January 7th, and Second Wednesday on January 10th.

SOAPING WEEKLY - In order to prepare your spirit for the message each week, S.O.A.P. through a passage (read the Scripture, make your Observation, find a specific Application, and write a Prayer) in advance of Sunday service.  Suggested SOAPing Scripture passages for January are:  January 7 – Galatians 1:1-9
                      January 14 – Galatians 1:10-24
                      January 21 – Galatians 2:1-10
                      January 28 – Galatians 2:11-21

LEGACY ADULTS EVENT - For everyone aged 55 and older, mark your calendars for Thursday, January 4th for the next Legacy Adults event at the Church at the Cross (700 Good Homes Rd, Orlando).  The concert, presented by the Benson Family Singers, will begin at 10 am.  Contact Maurice Bender (321.946.6225) if you need more information.

FORGIVEN AND FREE - Choices Women’s Clinic will be offering a 9-week class, Forgiven and Free Abortion Recovery, beginning on January 11th, 10 am – 12 noon.  Research shows that abortion can have long and potentially devastating effects on women and their relationships, sometimes manifesting many years after the fact.  If you, or someone you know, could benefit from the healing and freedom offered post-abortion (no matter how long ago), contact Sandy at Choices (407.277.5527 ext 3070) to register for this class.
