I greet you in the only name that saves and that is Jesus the Christ.
Yes, we have left the month of January and now enter into the month of February, 2018. On Friday, the 2nd, the groundhog saw
his shadow and that means there will be at least six more weeks of winter.
First things first, there are some folks that I must thank. I'd like to thank Mothers Sue Batten and Dorothy
Hays, Sisters Jacqueline Coates and Betty Pearson, Deacon Nyoka Hill and anyone who helped prepare the meal for our Unity
Breakfast. Hats off to Reverend Hamilton, Reverend Lunn, Minister Brice, Minister Hill, and Reverend Rice for preaching
at our Unity Breakfast. Thank you Reverend Roney for being our soloist at the breakfast. Thank you Berean from
the pulpit to the door for being present at our first Communion. Thank you for starting the year off right by being
installed into office. I would like to personally thank all who paid their First Fruits and I'm extending the opportunity
to those who did not pay to be able to pay them now.
like to inform some and remind others that we are about to start a major renovation project. We have secured a loan
from MECU for the renovation. The church needs you more now than ever before. We'd like to pay this loan off as
soon as possible but we cannot do it without your help. I am asking every member to rise to the occasion in giving so
we can do our best to liquidate the loan and the mortgage. If EVERYONE does their part, we can do this in a timely fashion.
It's tax time so please consider giving Berean a special offering from your tax returns. We're in the process of making electronic
banking a part of our financial process and I hope in the March newsletter I'll be able to say that it is up and running.
I have been getting a lot of shout outs from Facebook about our worship service. Thank all
of you for a job well done. Please support Deaconess Donna Rice and Sister April Lunn for our Black History Month program.
Our Communion has been moved to the third Sunday and our Black History program will be on the fourth Sunday. I am anticipating
a great blessing from God through our program. Please be supportive if and when you're asked to be a part of it.
We are in the process of setting our Watch Care Ministry. All of us will be placed into a group under the leadership
of one of the ministers, deacons, and or deaconesses. Soon you will be informed of the group that you have been assigned
Berean, thank you for all that you do but remember we can
always do better. Lady Natasha and I are so proud of you. Please keep us and Berean in your prayers.
