Mission Committee Announcement - Clara Biswas

‘Tis the season of giving and gathering.  Treasuring old memories and making new ones with our family and friends near and far.  While we are all contemplating our future priorities, please also contemplate our covenant relationship with Clara Biswas and the Street Children’s Mission in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  This is a special relationship that depends, in part, on our pledges to it throughout the year.  Please look for Clara’s special letter to us that will be in this month’s Circuit Writer.  Thank you for all your continuing prayers and support. You will find a pledge form in this bulletin for you to contribute to Clara Biswas’ Children’s Mission today.


Fresh Start Service

Reminder, our new contemporary praise and worship fellowship led by Pastor Lynnette and TUMC’s praise band, Broken Bread, is at 5:30 p.m. every Sunday, preceded at 5:00 p.m. by snacks, desserts, and casual fellowship. Named “Fresh Start”, it’s more than a “service”, being truly designed for people to grow in the knowledge and love of Jesus through fellowship with each other, regardless of background.  Please join us.


Page Turners

The Page Turners book discussion group is challenging itself with a long, scholarly book this month.  On Wednesday, January 23rd, we will talk about the new biography, Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Issacson.  Everyone is welcome to join us even if you have not read the book.  We meet at 2:00 PM in the church library.

February’s book choice is The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See.  Lynn Montgomery is the contact person for the group.  You can reach her at 828-440-1178
