Kirkland family church began the year with a New Year's Eve celebration. We gathered at the church for fellowship, food, fun and games. It was a good evening!
January is stewardship month and Debbie Yaros taught a stewardship class during the Sunday Schoo hour. The ladies and men's classes were combined during this time. Debbie is an excellent teacher and has a heart for this ministry! Many are still commenting on what they have learned! The subjects included budgeting, tithing and giving, retirement, and the church financial structure. This class was a blessing to all!
Ten youth and 8 adults attended and worked at Teen Retreat. A big thanks to those who planned and supported the fundraiser for retreat. Every camper's tuition was paid and transportation was provided. It takes us all working together! God met our youth at retreat and we give Him praise for all He has done!!
Adult Retreat was such a blessing! We were blessed by the worship and Word. Kathy and John Payne ministered as the Lord directed! Again, God is so good!!
In February, a service was held to honor our Senior members. kathy Johnson did a great job planning this service. Each senior was honored by being escorted to the front by a youth or adult and then heard why they were appreciated and loved. They were each presented with a rose and there was prayer for each one indivivually. There was such a sweet spirit in this service. We love our Senior members! After service fellowship and food was enjoyed at a potluck dinner.
Several have asked about church membership and Pastor Shelly is teaching a membership class during the Sunday School hour for those who are interested in joining the church. Prasie God for all He is doing!!
