* Excellente!   Our Special Guest Speaker  right here at 25 S. Newland St. on Sunday/2.18, 10:40 a.m., will be Founder and President of Nat’l Home Improvement, Steve Becker.   Steve’s company just provided the amazing $100K+ hail damage repairs for the Church garage and building, and  parsonage.

* Excellent quotes from this past Sunday’s/1.14 message, “Choose Your Measurement”:
      
“Give to the Lord first.  I know people who say they can’t give to the
church, and yet they’ve got a new cell phone and are carrying a cup of
Starbucks into Church every week.  That doesn’t compute.  Learn to give
the first and best of your money to the Lord.  The harder that seems, 
the more you need to do it.”   (Tim Challies)
