Church directory update from committee chair Linda Schreiner

Many of you have been asking about progress on our new church photo directory. To update everyone on the status, the completed layout has been sent to our photographer/printer, Lifetouch, who will soon provide us with a proof copy. Several staff members and volunteers will review the contents again, and then it will then be submitted for final printing. How long all of this will take? We are looking at several weeks yet, with the earliest the directory will be available as late February or early March. The committee would like to thank everyone for their cooperation and patience during this important project for our church community.

Library monthly book review

In the library committee's continuing effort to acquaint the congregation with their favorite books, a different book review is shared each month. Look for these reviews posted around the church in convenient places. The library book review for January is The Action Bible by Doug Mauss, illustrated by Sergio Cariello. Read the book review by Dottie Matthews posted around the church and come and check out this and other offerings that the library has on display. The Action Bible presents 215 fast-paced narratives in chronological order, making it easier to follow the Bible’s historical flow—and reinforcing the build-up to its thrilling climax. The library is located across from Lower Fellowship Hall.
