The Pastor's Pen

Dear Friends,

Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. is our Men’s Breakfast. ALL men should plan to attend for great food and fellowship.

On Sunday, the Outreach Committee is sponsoring the Guatemala Bake Sale. It’s going to be cold on Saturday, so just plan to stay in and bake. Then, on Sunday, you can buy!

Also, on Sunday, we will hold the Ordination and Installation of Officers at the Sanctuary Service. This is always a meaningful part of our year.

Men's Breakfast on Saturday at 8 am

All men are invited to a Men's Breakfast on Saturday at 8:00 a.m. Jack Emmert will be back at the griddle dishing up his usual delicious fare. Bring a friend.


In preparation for his sermon this past Sunday on the role of women in the church, Michael reached out to some women in our congregation and asked them to share their experiences about being part of a congregation where women are welcomed at all levels of leadership. Their responses can be read here.


The search for someone to fill the position of Church Organist is underway. An ad has been placed in the newsletter of the Nashville Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Branson Clark has been making inquiries with the various associations of school musicians. Meanwhile, we have interim organists lined up through February.

As the NFL playoffs convene, so does our annual Souper Bowl of Caring Food Drive. This drive collects food for the Wilson County Community Help Center and our goal this year is to collect 1,000 food items. You can donate your food based on the team you believe will win the Super Bowl (monetary donations are also accepted). When a team loses, their food will be added to the team to whom they lost. On Super Bowl Sunday (February 13), ONE team will claim the food drive victory. Donate food Monday through Friday during regular church hours or during Sunday worship.
