ANNOUNCEMENTS

144 ENVELOPES FUNDRAISER: The Student Ministry is seeking your support to help discount the cost of camp and Mission this summer for any student that wants to attend. Please take a numbered envelope or two.  Whatever number you take is the amount you are pledging to the student ministry.  Give online, or place your check/cash in the envelope and then place in the offering box/plate.  Fundraiser ends on March 10th.

CHARGE CONFERENCE ON 3/3:  First Church is having a charge conference on Sunday March 3 at 12:15p (Servant leaders voting in person via ballot only) to vote on the approval of our own Ryan McDowell as a candidate for Ministry.  He was approved by the Family Staff Servants this February to move forward.  Conversation and support are welcomed as the Servant Leaders will cast their in-person votes.

SCRIPTURE READER PARTICIPATION: If you would like to be a scripture reader on Sunday mornings we’d love to have you! Most readers serve quarterly. Contact Dawn Dutton 260-906-6138. (Call or text)

THRIFT BOUTIQUE UPDATE : The Thrift could use more able-bodied volunteers – at least once a week. This is especially needed on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. They need to be able to go on ladders, help lift small furniture, take care of the tool and sports sections, and do other tasks, as requested. You’ll feel blessed by this ministry.

AARP FREE TAX AIDE:  Tax Aide Appointments can be made at their website which is AARP.org/taxhelp then click “GET STARTED”. If not able to do so then call 386-287-1960 for an appointment. Taxes will be prepared on Tuesday and Thursday 8:30a-12:30p from February 5th through April 13. Please do not call the church office as they have no other info.
