BOOK CLUB:  On Monday, January 28th, at 1:00 p.m. we will meet to discuss Madison Park: A Place of Hope by Eric L. Motley. 

NEW HYMNAL DEDICATION CAMPAIGN:  Today we are launching a campaign for our congregation to purchase dedications for our new hymnals. The books will be $20 each. You can purchase “In Memory of” lost loved ones, “In Honor of” any family and/or friends, or simply “For the Glory of God”. Beautiful bookplates will be placed in the front of each dedicated hymnal. Stop by our table in Fellowship Hall today after church to review the new hymnal and to make your dedications.

DID YOU KNOW…that you are able to direct your Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA to the Church as a Qualified Charitable Donation? If you are over 70 and ½, you can reduce your taxable income by making charitable donations to a qualified charity using all or part of your Required Minimum Distribution, if you cannot itemize on your taxes. The idea is that the donation does not show up as part of your tax liability. For more information, contact a member of the Endowment Committee, Sue Brooks, or your financial advisor.
