2018 Bible Reading Plan
We found a great reading plan that takes you through the entire Bible (or just the New Testament, if you choose) in a year. You read five times a week with two days off to catch up or to read somewhere else. We hope that all of you will join us in 2018 as we read the Bible together. The reading plan will be available this Sunday.
Perspectives on the World Christian Movement is a 15 week life-changing course on God’s heart for the nations. The class will be held on Wednesday nights January 17-May 2 at the Rosedale International Center. To learn more or to register please visit their website, email ColumbusPerspectives2018@gmail.com, or stop by our Welcome Center and pick up a flyer.
Sundays in December
Support a great work while giving a coffee-loving friend a tasty gift! This coffee is grown in Honduras by a member of our sister church there, and purchased by Friendly Bean coffee (Kansas City) who roasts, packages, and makes it available to us. Friendly Bean donates 50% of the profits from this coffee to Casa Hogar Vida (House-Home-Life), which is a project in Honduras helping families affected by AIDS. Each one pound bag of coffee is $8.50. Check out the table in the Fellowship Hall for more information.
Christmas Giving Tree
Due Wednesday December 20
This year our Christmas Giving Tree will be directed to the refugee families at the Whispering Oaks apartment complex. We would like to provide each child with a toy, and give each family a Kroger gift card. Visit the Giving Tree in the lobby and take a tag detailing the gender and age of a child. Please return your gift by Wednesday December 20. Thank you for being part of loving our community in Jesus' name.

Christmas Eve Offering
On Christmas Eve, we will take up the normal tithes/offerings as well as a special offering to support the East Asia mission trip and the Whispering Oaks ministry. The special offering should be placed in the marked envelopes on the back of the pews. The offering plates will be passed just once.
