Fellowship Dinner This Sunday! — This Sunday evening, January 21, we will have a shorter, early Worship Service (5 PM) followed by a covered-dish fellowship meal downstairs.  Bring 2 dishes—one main dish and one either appetizer, salad, or dessert.  What else are you going to do on a cold, winter Sunday evening?  Bring some tasty casseroles and desserts!

Ladies Bible Study — Continues tomorrow, Thursday, Jan. 18, 9:30 AM at church.  Pastor Meyers will continue our study through Genesis.  We begin this time at Genesis 10-11, the prelude to the life of Abraham.  You are invited to join with us at any time for the teaching, discussion, and fellowship.  Child care is provided.  Please contact Kathy Hoegemann if you need child care.

2017 Contribution Statements — Please be sure to pick up your 2017 contribution statement (for tax purposes) available on the book table in the narthex.

Birth of Colton Emile Lahood — Becky (Meyers) Lahood gave birth to little Colton prematurely on New Year’s eve.  She had to have an emergency C-section at 30 weeks.  He was born just 2lbs 14oz.  The doctor told her yesterday that when she arrived at the hospital she had severe complications and it was miraculous that she came to the hospital in time.  My wife and I give thanks to God for his mercy toward Becky and Fares.  As the doctor told her yesterday, “God was watching out for you.”  Colton is doing very well now.  Today he is up to 3lb 4oz.  We thank you all for your prayers and encouragement!

New Adult Sunday School Class — This Sunday we continue our new adult Sunday school class focusing on the creeds and confessions of the church.  We are going all the way back to the early church so that everybody understands that our faith and practice are grounded in the "old catholic" tradition of the church. This class will not be too academic.  It will not simply be a series of history lessons.  We will focus on the big picture, biblical support, and the significance of each of these creeds and confessions for the contemporary church.  We will use Justin Holcomb’s book Know the Creeds and Councils   It’s not too expensive ($10) and it’s very readable.  We will only have a few copies left on the book table.

Women in the Church (WIC) Book Discussion — The next book discussion will be on Monday, February 12 at 7:00 pm.  We are reading the book, The Woman Who Smashed Codes: A True Story of Love, Spies, and the Unlikely Heroine Who Outwitted America's Enemies by Jason Fagone.  You can get the book from Amazon for about $17.  The discussion will be held at the home of Maggie Montgomery, 741 Hawbrook in Glendale.  All women are invited to join us for Bunco and for the book group, even if you don’t read the book.

Women of the Church (WIC), do you receive WIC emails? Would you like to? Please contact Debbie Keane to be added. Don’t want to receive WIC emails? Let Debbie know if you don’t want to be on the group mailings.

Nursery Care — Thank you for signing up to help in the nursery!  The schedule is filled with volunteers!

Missionary Update & Prayer — This week pray for Ken & Rith Tombing and their ministry to orphans in Manipur, India.  Go here if you need to refresh your memory about Covenant Children’s Home. 

Contact Numbers — You can reach the church secretary, Jennifer Vermeer, via email (vermeerjenniferl@gmail.com) or her phone (208-899-9123).  Make sure you get your announcements to her by Wednesday evening each week to insure they get into the Sunday bulletin.  You can reach Pastor Meyers at jeffmeyers@me.com or his phone (314-374-5258).

The Week’s Scripture Passage — Mark 1:14-15
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the good news from God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is near; repent and believe in the good news.”

Missouri Presbytery — Our church is a member of the regional church body, the Missouri Presbytery.  In the presbyterian system of government the presbytery is composed of ministers and ruling elders from all the churches in a given region.  Missouri Presbytery is one of 86 presbyteries in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).  Missouri Presbytery meets 4 times a year.  Our next meeting is this Tuesday, January 16th, at Chesterfield PCA.  Providence leaders have served in various leadership roles in MO Presbytery for many years.  Currently, Randy Stone is Treasurer of the Presbytery and Monte Shields serves on the committee that examines candidates for the ministry.  Pastor Meyers is now the Moderator of the Presbytery, a two-year term.  You are always welcome to attend a presbytery meeting.  It’s a public event.  It’s not always that exciting, to be sure.  But please pray for the work of MO Presbytery as we assemble next week to conduct the business and ministry of the regional church.

New Adult Sunday School Class — This Sunday (Jan. 14) we begin a new adult Sunday school class that will focus on the creeds and confessions of the church.  Originally I considered doing just the Reformed Creeds and Confessions, but in discussion with the Session, it was suggested that we go all the way back so that everybody understands that our faith and practice are grounded in the "old catholic" tradition of the church. This class will not be too academic.  It will not simply be a series of history lessons.  We will focus on the big picture, biblical support, and the significance of each of these creeds and confessions for the contemporary church.  We will use Justin Holcomb’s book Know the Creeds and Councils   It’s not too expensive ($10) and it’s very readable.  We will only have a few copies on the book table.

Nursery Care — Thank you for signing up to help in the nursery!  The schedule is filled with volunteers!

Missionary Update & Prayer — Take a few moments to read Georgette’s latest update on the Burundi Miracle Project   Then pray for the amazing work that she is doing with La Providence Orphanage to minister to fatherless and orphaned children in Burundi.

The Week’s Scripture Passage — 2 Timothy 2:14b
. . . do not engage in polemics that are of no profit but lead to the destruction of those hearing them.
