Happy New Year everyone! We join you in giving God thanks for 2018, and in putting our trust in what God wants to accomplish in and through us in 2019! 

Our last Sunday of 2018 was amazing! Not only did we celebrate Caleb's commitment to following Christ in baptism, but we also talked about the importance of reflecting on the year past and seeking God's guidance for the year to come. I pray God speaks directly to your heart this month about the opportunities the Holy Spirit has for you in 2019.

As we begin a new year, I want to put an opportunity for mission and service before our church: the opportunity to care for our animals and those who love them--for dogs, that means dogs and their owners; for cats, that means cats and the people they own. (Our family's little Tabby Cat, Bishop, is walking on my keyboard even as I type this...and I had to delete the greeting she offered.)

This month, we will collect supplies to support the work of a local non-profit, HappyKats, an organization that works to place cats with families. One way we can help is to donate some supplies. If you'd like to help, we'll have a list shortly.

Also, I hope you can join us Saturday, January 26 at 10am at the Heritage Park Dog Park in Weatherford, where we will be present for the hour to hand out free dog treats to those who visit the park. 

May God bless you and your family in this wonderful new year!

Rev. Jon and Amber Reeves

Chili Cook Off Dinner is tonight, Jan 2, at 6:30p! The weather looks like it will hold out enough for us to enjoy some belly-warming chili together, but we advise you to be safe and use your best judgment on the roads where you live.
WINTER VBS IS TODAY AT 3:00-6:00! We can't wait to see you!
Join us this Sunday at 10a at Mary Martin Elem for our January Sermon Series kickoff. Many people associate a new year with the opportunity to quit something... but maybe we haven't focused on quitting those things that will bring the most benefit to our lives. Come talk about it with us!
