A new Women’s Bible study began January 13. We meet every Monday at 5:45 pm in the basement board room. All women are invited to join us for “Trustworthy”, a study of 1 & 2 Kings by Lysa Terkeurst. Books are $10. We still have some books available if you were not able to come last Monday. Stop in the office to pick one up.

Do you have an interest in learning to play bells? Our Bell Choir director, Cameron Mitchell, will be teaching a Bell Workshop on Jan 26, Feb 2 & Feb 9 during Education Hour. Questions can be directed to Cameron at  515-782-2920.

The Book to Know group will meet March 12th, 7:00 pm, at Gretchen Zitterich’s home to discuss “Daughter of Jerusalem: A Novel” by Joan Wolf. Everyone is invited to read this book and join us for the discussion.

Looking for a way to serve? We need people to serve Sunday morning coffee at 9:45 am for Jan. and Feb. The sheets are posted on the bulletin board.

Everyone is invited to come to the fellowship hall before education hour for coffee. Two Sundays a month (the Sundays there is no communion) there are coffee and treats and a free-will offering is taken for a special need.

If you have a special occasion to celebrate or just want to offer, we need members to sign up on the altar flower chart that is located on the bulletin board in the narthex.
