Good News, Gateway Family!
Beginning this Sunday, the Sunday bulletin will include member birthdays by birthday month! These will be listed in order of occurrence.
Going forward you can expect to see birthdays on the backside of the bulletin (say that 5x fast!) on the first two Sundays of each month. Why the first two? In case I leave one or two off by mistake…gives me a chance to correct the error. 😉
For the sake of members’ privacy, we will not list the exact dates, just the month. But feel free to reach out to your friends to find out their exact birthdays.
Remember that you can also access the bulletins for the past six weeks on the website and the app. It’s one of my goals for 2018 to have every Sunday bulletin uploaded by the Saturday prior to church service. This way, you can read it on your phone Sunday morning, before you even arrive at Gateway.
Here’s what’s coming up:
Singles Kickoff Breakfast (Saturday January 6th, 9am): There are some GREAT plans in the works for 2018! All Singles are invited to join us for a hot breakfast at the church building, as well as some time to dream and plan for the coming year. Questions? Text Theresa Warner (309-310-1515) or Ellen Campen (281-757-7179).
Titus 2 Women (Saturday January 20th, 9:30am): Our first quarterly Titus 2 class of the year will be taught by Kathleen Palmer! Topic will be announced soon. As always, light refreshments will be provided and childcare will be available for the little ones.
Sacred Marriage Book Discussion Group (Sundays, Jan 28 – Mar 11, 1pm): Marrieds, you have a great opportunity to learn about how through marriage, you can grow to be more like Jesus. Read more about this discussion group HERE on our website, or sign up HERE.
One more thing...I’ve been working with Tim and Crystal Schmidt on the camp registration forms for both HYC and HKK. We’re putting the finishing touches on them now; if all goes to plan, we should be able to launch BOTH camp registrations this Friday!
That’s it for now…stay warm, Gateway!
