Toilet Paper COLLECTION for FNOW- Toilet Paper is

 Once again needed at Family Network of Wyoming! During the

 next month we will have boxes at the entrances to our church

 where you can drop off toilet paper. Currently, a family is given 1

 roll of toilet paper when they come to get food at the pantry once a

 month. We would like to double that amount! If 50 families gave

 24 rolls, we would have 1,200 rolls of toilet paper to give to the

 pantry…..can YOU help make this become a reality? Thanks!

 

Y-LIFE – No meeting on March 4!

 

MOMENTUM - A Leadership Conference for volunteer leaders, staff,

 and pastors is scheduled for March 3, 2012 from 9AM till 4 PM at

 Fair Haven Ministries in Hudsonville. Cost is $35 for the entire day. 

 The keynote speaker is Dr George Hunter III, and his topic is ‘Church

 Growth Reconceived for a New Generation’. Workshops in a variety

 of areas will provide practical help in your local church. For details

 and registration, go to www.churchmomentum.org If you really want

 to attend, but are not able to come up with the finances, see Shari.

 

THE SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of February is designated

 for WORDS OF HOPE. Beginning in July, Words of Hope

 Devotional Booklets that we have available here at Grace will be free

 of charge. At the present time we pay for those. “We are doing this

 because we would rather have people support our ministry with

 voluntary donations than buy something from us. We want to build

 relationships, not business transactions. So we are eliminating the

 subscription fee to bring our devotional in line with the rest of our

 Bible study literature.” Our collection for Words of Hope was

 scheduled before we received their notice, so even more reason to

 give generously! This offering will be received on Feb. 26.

Please call the office if you would like to

share a Prayer Request or a Praise Report.
