Undie Sunday—January 24, 2016
Say What? What in the world is Undie Sunday? In keeping with Jesus’ commandments to feed the hungry and clothe the naked, our West Emory Church family is expanding the initiative that we began with our Angel Tree this year in our collection of warm hats, gloves, socks and scarves, to include a drive for new underwear that will be given to clothes closets and homeless shelters in our area. Let us see how many articles of underclothes we can gather for all ages - men, women, boys and girls!
Sunday, January 24th at 6 pm
Come warm your spirits and beat the winter chill at our Annual January Chili Supper. Bring a pot of your favorite chili or some tasty cornbread, chips or salad items. Ice cream sandwiches and drinks will be provided along with hot dogs and all the fixings.
Let’s Have Dinner Together in 2016!
Gathering in groups of eight to ten Dinner for Eight is a terrific way to enjoy great food, delightful fellowship and the opportunity to get to know other adults in our congregation better. Groups will meet monthly. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Miki, 690-5333. You don’t have to host a group to participate. A sign up sheet is on the hall bulletin board.
As we begin the year 2016 there is a lot for which to be grateful and a lot for which to look forward. We are reminded through the scriptures that “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). Because Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, has come among us, full of grace and truth, we can begin each new day, each new year with hope and the promise of new possibilities.
As I reflect back over the year past, I can’t help but be blessed by the generous and Spirit-filled ministry of those of you who make up the West Emory Presbyterian Church family. One just has to ponder the many outreach ministries, worship services, and educational and fellowship events to be reminded of all the many ways this congregation has taken seriously our Savior’s call to discipleship. Though we may be a smaller membership congregation, our care for one another and our outreach beyond our doors is outstanding.
As a family of faith, year after year, we continue to experience the energizing and inspiring presence of the Holy Spirit working in our midst through the persons and ministries that are a part of our mission.
This past year we welcomed seven new members and celebrated the baptism of four of our children. We grieved over the loss of two of our members and prayed for those who are living with illness or challenging life circumstances.
As we begin this new year, we look forward to the future with great energy and expectancy. May the light of God shine forth through us into our community; may our beautiful rose window remain a beacon of hope and love even in the darkest of nights; and may our lives continue to reflect the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is the good news of the gospel. Let us share it with the world.
Peace and Blessings to you all,
