We are back to our 3 regular worship services (8:45, 9:30 and 11:00)
this Sunday morning.
Hope to see you then !
The Adult Bible Study, Children and Youth are on break until January.
Don’t forget to pick up your cards off
the Christmas card table!
We will resume normal office hours this Monday, 3rd.
The staff is VERY appreciative of their “love offering” checks. You were very generous and the staff felt the love. THANK YOU!
The Trustees need your help! We are trying to locate our 10-foot yellow step ladder. It was last seen backstage in the MAC. If you might know the whereabouts of the ladder, please contact the church office.
Night to Shine-Thru Parade
Saturday, February 5
10:00-Noon
Please go to the church web page firstmethodistblairsville.com
At the bottom of the page is a link for Night to Shine.
Click the link and sign up as a Volunteer.
Please do not tell us verbally or through private email. (thanks)
We have 13 stations for our guests to stop and pick up “goodies.”
At this point, all the give a-ways are purchased or are in the works. We simply need smiling, energetic hosts to greet the guests and shower them with love and the give-a-ways we’ll have.
Please stop by and say a prayer over these quilts. Tying a knot lets the receiver know that people care and that we have prayed for them.
