Help Needed in our Nursery
Are You a Nurse or CPR/EMT Certified?
Recently there were two events in our church which prompted the discussion about who is CPR or EMT certified or trained as a nurse at the last Board of Deacons meeting. Gratefully, both cases were handled correctly with happy endings. The Deacons would like to compile a list of those who are CPR/EMT certified and/or are trained as nurses. Please submit your names to Kris if you are willing to have your name on this list. The Board of Deacons thanks you.

Deep River Food Pantry Needs – Sunday, March 3rd
We continue to collect non-perishable items for our Deep River Food Pantry on Communion Sunday, the first Sunday of each month. Present needs include: Peanut butter & jelly, pasta sauces, canned tuna or chicken, breakfast cereals, baked beans (not chick peas or other kinds of beans), as well as items for kids’ lunches. Adams often has 10 for $10 sales on some of these items. Please help keep the shelves well-stocked! Thank you in advance for your generosity.
GL Scrip News
A new year is here and we hope each and every one of you has a happy and healthy one. We thank all of those who supported the GL Scrip program last year, especially during the holidays. Now that the holiday season is over, we will submit orders for GL gift cards at the end of the month only. Adam gift cards are always available. Remember you can order cards online. More information about this is at our table in Fellowship Hall after each of our services. See you at our table, Jane and Elizabeth.
Our Winter Bible study and discussion group is being held on Tuesdays, at 7 p.m. in the Upper Room. It is based on a 5-session video by Bob Goff entitled “Everybody, Always—Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People.” In the series he shares stories from his life that helped him understand what it means to love the way Jesus did—without fear, insecurity, or restriction. He speaks with joy, humor, and inspiration and will help us to find love and be love in our world. All are welcome.
Reminder: School & Hygiene Kit Items are due no later than Feb. 24th
