Weekly Announcements

From the February 11, 2018 Bulletin

Announcements and Weekly Events

Childcare – We have preschool care during the worship services for preschoolers ages 0-5 in our nursery area (rooms 105-106.)  Children grades K-4 will stay with their parents during the song service, then they are dismissed to children’s church before the message.  You must pick up your child from children’s church after the service in Room 207.

 

Children’s Worship Bulletins – There are Children’s Worship Bulletins available on the rail by the organ each Sunday with activities to do during worship.  There are separate ones for ages 3-6 and ages 7-12.  Pick one up for your child.

 

Children’s Choir – Children’s Choir has begun rehearsals again on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm.  Children in grades K-6 are invited to join us in the choir room.

 

Murder Mystery Dinner - The youth will be hosting a Murder Mystery Dinner this Saturday, February 17th at 5:15 p.m.  This is another fundraiser to raise money for their Centrifuge trip and donations will be taken that evening.  Please sign up on the bulletin board or RSVP to Donna Gaines at 618-593-5259.  You may text or call Donna to let her know how many will be attending. Come ready to laugh and enjoy a fun evening together.  Dinner will be served throughout the production.   Hope to see you there!

 

Missions Spectacular – On Saturday, June 2, our church will be hosting the IBSA sponsored Missions Spectacular event.  All projects will be in the Wood River/East Alton area.  Please be praying for our planning team as they plan for hosting this event.  At this time pray for Bro. Greg Gomez as he is enlisting the various ministry locations for that day.

 

Mission Trip Information Meeting – If you missed the information meeting about our church mission trip to Wellington, CO, but want to know the details about our trip, contact the Pastor and he will meet with you and fill you in.  We need more people on our mission trip team to adequately conduct a VBS at the Trailhead Church!

 

Newsletter – The February newsletter is available on the table in the foyer for those who do not receive it via email.

 

“Let All You Do Be Done in Love”

1 Corinthians 16:14

Seniors – The Keenagers will meet this Thursday, February 15 at Golden Corral in Alton at 1:00 pm.  Anyone age 55 and up is welcome to attend.

 

Mission Trip Registration – If you are planning to go on the church mission trip to Wellington, CO on July 21-28, 2018, you need to place your name on the “Mission Trip Sign-up Sheet” by March 1.  You will also need to turn in your registration form and $65 to the pastor by March 19.  Registration Forms are on the table in the foyer.

 

New Deacon Selection – Our church has voted to select some new deacons.  We presently have 5 deacons but feel it is time to add some new deacons.  Our present deacons are:  Denny Gaines, Jim Faries, Dennis Schillinger, Kevin Keener and Brad Gaines.  On Sunday, March 11, each member will be allowed to nominate on a secret ballot, the names of up to 3 men for consideration as new deacons.  You may nominate only 1 or 2, but no more than 3.  The deacons will take these nominations and pray about them and seek God’s leadership and then ask the men from those nominated to consider the ministry of a deacon.  Please pray about this process and who you will nominate.

 

Worship Helpers Section of Bulletin – We want our helpers to be as informed as possible regarding when they are to work.  If you are the leader in charge of scheduling, please be sure to contact the secretary before the last week of each month with an up to date schedule for the following month.  This can be by email, text, phone call, or a written note in her mailbox.
