Just a reminder that giving envelopes can be picked up at the church during office hours or on Sunday morning. The envelopes are on a table opposite the elevator. The envelopes are now in tear-off form and your name is on the spine.

Mustard Seed School
Happy New Year! Thank you for the lovely Christmas devotion book. I found it inspiring and it added beauty to my times of prayer. We are just coming off of some remote learning weeks and will start up at school again. While most students are coming to school, there are some who for various reasons are learning remotely. For a few of them this is very difficult and we are trying to find new ways to keep them engaged. We also just had an announcement of our new Head of School, an internal candidate who I think will carry the role and responsibilities well. Thank you for your prayers and support.
As 2020 came to an end, we closed out the 13th year of a ministry through recycling! This year obviously had more challenges, but in spite of that, was still a time to give deep thanks: thanks for the warm camaraderie and fellowship within the team, for opportunities to serve and use our gifts, for countless conversations and contacts with the community (both individuals and businesses), for being able to play a part in working to preserve and care for God’s gift of his creation. It continues to be a wonderful way for our church to both be a blessing and to be blessed.
