"No calling is beneath us. Every calling provides an opportunity to serve and to grow. The Lord organized the Church in a way that offers each member an opportunity for service, which in turn, leads to personal spiritual growth. Whatever your calling, I urge you to see it as an opportunity not only to strengthen and bless others but also to become what Heavenly Father wants you to become." - Pres. Dieter F. Uchtdorf-
If your New Year's Resolutions include coming to choir, now is the perfect time to start! We are singing exciting music that will help you enjoy the Sabbath more fully. Join us Sunday mornings at 9:30 in Robbi Ann's home. (We don't practice on Fast Sundays.) Questions -- call Marilee.
Wrapped in Love--one of our Humanitarian Projects 2009. We will be collecting all kinds of doll babies, cleaning them up, fixing their hair, sewing new clothes, and wrapping them in snuggly homemade blankets. So, please, ask your family, friends, and neighbors if they have any toys to contribute. We're also collecting cars and trucks, so the little boys won't feel left out! Same guidelines apply--no porcelain, battery run, or junque! Check at yard sales, DI, attics, basements, closets, etc. These items may be brought to church or dropped by Sr. Johnson's. Call Mary Jane with questions. Thanks for all your help.
