For Our Guests
Thank you for honoring us with your presence today. Our guiding verse is “For we do not preach ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.” (II Corinthians 4:5). With that in mind, we’d like to ask all first time guests to fill out the “We’re Glad You’re Here!” card in your guest pack so we can know how best to be your servant. We ask that you place the card in the offering plate as it is passed. If you prefer you may fill out an online guest card at chinagrovefbc.com/guests

Thanks to everyone for contributing to the success of the Capital Improvement Fund for our bathrooms. To date we have raised $45,748.78. The designated account is still open so please continue to give. At the January 27th business meeting, Finance and Trustees will bring a joint motion to the church for approval. The details of the motion are:

  1. Form a building committee to be made up of seven men and women
  2. The committee will bring a recommendation to the church for a plan to create on the main floor of the sanctuary:
    1. Two Handicap Accessible bathrooms
    2. A new women’s bathroom that will accommodate the needs of our church family and guests
    3. A new men’s bathroom that will accommodate the needs of our church family and guests
  3. The committee will review the downstairs bathrooms to determine if changes should be made
  4. The proposed budget for the renovation will be $100,000 or less
  5. The committee will bring a recommendation to the May business meeting for specific approval of a plan of action with proposed fixed plan and definitive budget

Hear…Pray…Act – This week we are praying for Steven Kunkel, missionary to Japan. Steven was recently commissioned to be a missionary in Japan last month, and will be joining us tonight from Japan as part of the January Bible Study. Steven’s desire is to not only share the love of Christ with those in Japan, but to also show the love of Christ by investing in their lives directly. He is actively engaging those who God brings into his path and developing relationships in order to walk alongside of them. To learn more about praying for international missionaries, please visit www.operationworld.org

Unreached People – This week we’re praying for the Meena people of India. It is unknown if there are any believers among the 4.6 million people in this group. 99.7% of the Meena people believe in Hinduism, and believe that if they do well in this life, after they do, they will come back in stars in the next life. They lack education, illiteracy, and access to proper health and hygiene care. As a result, they battle many sicknesses.
