“God . . . does everything just right and on time,

but people can never completely understand what he is doing.”

~Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NCV)~

I know several people who are having elective surgery/procedures this week. You probably know some too. Write their names on your prayer list.

This weather doesn’t help those who have illnesses like sinus issues, cold, and flu. As you remember to wear your mask, also remember jackets, hats, and gloves.

Read the Bible in 2020 – December 28

Zechariah 12:1-13:9
Revelation 19:1-21
Psalm 147:1-20O
Proverbs 31:1-7

Remember to pick up your copy of the chronological Bible readings for 2021. They are available at FBC, Kentwood during office hours this week. I’ve already started since I finished the 2020 readings a few days early and find them easy to follow.

Operation Christmas Child

We have started shopping for our 2021 “shoeboxes”. We are also beginning the process of collecting something different this year. We need good, clean men’s button-front shirts to repurpose into dresses. All sizes are useful. These can be left in the church office or in the classroom next to the choir room. We will also be accepting lace, rick-rack, and fabric scraps suitable to make pockets for the girls’ dresses.
