The FRC Consistory wants to inform you of an exciting opportunity that has come up for Pastor Brian and Pastor Bob.  Recently an email came to the attention of the pastors through a pastoral connection informing them of an opportunity to go to Israel with a group of pastors to be "trained" in leading such trips.  This is an excellent opportunity and price of the trip is very reasonable. Therefore, it was approved for Pastor Brian and Pastor Bob to attend as a continuing education event.  Please be in prayer for them as they prepare and participate in this opportunity from January 29 – Feb. 8.

MISSION OF THE MONTH:  The January offerings will be going to the Salvation Army Emergency Lodge.  The amount received to date is $315.00.

New members are welcome to attend the Eernisse Circle!  We meet on the 4th Tuesday of every month.  We would like to have you join us this Tuesday, January 22, at 9:00 AM in the Church Fellowship Hall for our first meeting of the New Year. Hope to see you there!
