Do you realize that in less than 11 months it will be Christmas again, and in five more days we will be into the new month of February. We are finally getting a real blast of winter weather, which is great for the skiers, the snowmobilers, and the winter sport enthusiasts. Drive your cars with care as you travel to the trails, the hills and the skating rinks.

Get well wishes are sent out to all who are “under the weather” this week.
Happy 9th birthday wishes go out to Mya Puckrin, whose birthday is on February 1st.
A thank-you goes out to Len Somerville this week, for bringing his equipment, on a cold Saturday, to break up the thick ice in the church parking lot and lane way. A thank-you also goes out to Dale Goddard, for replacing and updating the supplies for the AED in the basement.
Sunday morning was cold, snowy and blustery, but several people gathered together for our service. The greeters were Chris and Brooke Acton. The scripture reader was Wendy Hughes. The Christ candle was lit by Emelia Pike and Steph-anie. The Ministry of Music anthem was entitled “He” and was sung in harmony, and with humming. It was beautiful. The Minute for Mission was read by Dale Goddard. It was about the gathering of LGBTQ people who are learning about gender identity. The Youth and Young At Heart story was read by Minister Stephanie, and was entitled “When God Made You”. It was told that God made you all shiny and new, and that each one of us is one of a kind, and we are all wanted, needed and loved. You are special and wonderful just the way you are. Stephanie’s sermon was entitled “One Body, Many Gifts”. She told us that every single person is important, and has a gift to share while we are work-ing together in unity. It may not always work, but we won’t know unless we try. We are called to use our gifts as disciples of Christ.
