Big Wednesday (PreK - 5th Grade) will meet THIS Wednesday January 23 from 6-7:30pm.
 
One of our goals this year is to do an overall evaluation of our church’s ministry. We would like to invite you to fill out a SWOT survey found at the welcome tables and at mtpulaskicc.org/swot19. We want to hear from you what you believe are our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. We would like to have these back either in the offering plate or church office by Sunday, February 3 and encourage you to fill them out online. Thank you!
 
Congregational update will be Sunday, January 27 during both services. At the end of each service we will be voting on (1) Mark Belley as elder, and (2) the proposed by-laws.  
 
There are copies of the proposed changes to the by-laws at the welcome tables.  Please feel free to pick one up and contact one of the elders, Mark or Casey if you have any questions. The elders will host a “Coffee with the elders” on Thursday, January 31 at 6:30 pm if you’d like to come and ask questions, give feedback about the by-laws (or anything else, for that matter), or for prayer. We will meet in the room across from Mark’s office in the Sanctuary building.
 
The annual church leadership conference at Lincoln Christian University will be Saturday, February 16 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. This year’s speakers are Gene Appel and Chuck Sacket. Gene is the senior pastor of Eastside Christian Church in Anaheim, CA. Chuck serves on the preaching team of Madison Park Christian Church in Quincy, IL. The theme is “Leading a Mission Ready Church”.  You may register online lincolnchristian.edu/churchleaders.   Cost is $35 if you register before Feb. 11 (or $40 after).
 
You are invited to an all church potluck on Sunday, February 10 immediately following 2nd service in the Family Life Center. All table service will be provided, and we ask that each family please bring 2 dishes to share. If you or your family are planning to attend please sign up on your communication card.
