Announcements for Sunday, January 3, 2016:

SUNDAY SCHOOL/CATECHISM will not meet today for Christmas Break. All classes will resume next week Sunday, January 10.

CHURCH CLOSET CLEAN OUT: We have many closets at church that are in need of a good cleaning! On Friday, January 8 from 7-9PM and on Saturday, January 9 from 10Am-4PM, we will have work days when we will take down all the Christmas decorations and clean out/organize closets. We need your help because many hands make light work! Please consider signing up to help, especially if you have knowledge about a particular closet and its contents. If you would be able to volunteer a few hours of your time, please sign up on the sheet provided at the back of church. Talk to Jeni Brandsma with questions.

MERIDIAN BIBLE STUDY will meet on Thursday, Jan. 7 @ 7:30PM, at the home of John and Judy Vander Woude. We will be studying Colossians 3:18-4:1. All are welcome to join us. We will meet again on Thursday, Jan. 21 to study Colossians 4:2-18.

YOUTH GROUP will meet next week Sunday, January 10 at 4:30PM. Wilhelm & Jillian Oppedyk will provide snacks.

NEW MEMBERS’ CLASS: Anyone who is considering making public profession of faith should plan to attend our New Members’ Class beginning on January 10, 2016, after our morning worship service. The class will continue through February. If you have any questions, please see Pastor Russ.
