devotionals on that theme for a total of 48 devotionals.  There is a scripture passage, a short reflections and a series of questions and a closing prayer.  If you are interested in purchasing a book for $6.00 please contact Susan Thorson, Parish Nurse at the church office 665-2991.  Talk to your friends and think about doing this Bible Study to replenish your bodies with good exercise and spiritual enrichment.

 

- International Food Fest The Missions Committee will be hosting their 3rd Annual International Food Fest on January 19th from 5-7 pm in Wesley Hall. We will have sign-up sheets in Wesley Hall for you to write down your name, what you will be bringing, and what Country the food is from.  The Food Fest has been a time of great fellowship and a time for us to hear from different members of our Church family on the various mission opportunities they have had this past year. We hope to see you all there! If you have any questions, please get a hold of Nick & Tracy Kisch or any of the Missions Committee members and we would be glad to help in any way we can.

 

- Tree of Life Ministry The Rosebud Reservation is the second poorest county in the entire USA.  Over 1,000 people depend on “Tree of Life” for free hot meals each week.  With cutbacks in food stamps, the ministry is more needed than ever.  Without an increase in financial support the ministry may have to curtail their food pantry and hot meal program during the winter months.  With that being said, the Missions Committee has committed to continue the Miles of Pennies into the New Year.

 

- Church Directory there are a few 2014 Church Directories available on the Welcome Table. If you have a new phone number, address or email please let Lisa in the office know.

- Faith and Home First United Methodist Church will be providing a study group for parents once a month.  We will plan to meet for 45 minutes the first Sunday of the month in the east end of Wesley Hall during the Sunday School hour at 9:45am. Each session will have a gathering time, a prayer, scripture, a scenario with a discussion and a closing on a variety of topics related to parenting. Different members of our church will be speaking on each of the selected topics listed below.  This will be a very informal time. When we learn in a group, we share and support one another.  We learn new ideas and learn from parents with older children.  We receive reassurance hearing from other families that have concerns like we do.  Stories and concerns shared will be confidential.  It will be a time of learning, sharing our faith and enjoying one another.  Free coffee and healthy snacks are an option to those attending the sessions.  Contact Susan Thorson, Parish Nurse by leaving a message at 665-2991 if you are interested in attending.
