Inside: funeral arrangements for Garrett Edmunds and Marianne Whitaker, updates on Upward Basketball, pews for sale, bloodmobile, and more.
By now, many of you have heard of the passing of our dear friend, trustee, and deacon, Garrett Edmunds. Visitation will be this Sunday, February 12 at 2:00 in the FBC atrium followed by a funeral at 3:00 in the sanctuary.
Also, we are saddened to share that on Wednesday, February 8, Marianne Whitaker passed away. Visitation will be at noon on Saturday, February 11 at Curtis Funeral Home followed by the funeral, and a graveside service at 1:00 PM.
We find great comfort in the divine assurance that they are both celebrating in the presence of Jesus right now! And we also take up the challenge to continue to care about the needs of children just as they both did...
We are in need of items for our Upward Basketball Celebration. Things such as gift cards and prizes are given out to all the participants. You can also give a monetary donation and we will use this money to purchase some items. Upward Celebration will be Saturday, March 11 at 5:00 PM. This is always a fun conclusion to the season as we honor our teams and volunteers. If you are interested in making a donation please contact Ben (email@example.com).
Stop by church next Thursday afternoon to donate blood! All the blood donated through the bloodmobile will stay in the CSRA to help those in need.
We are replacing the balcony pews with new chairs. The chairs have arrived, so we can put these pews up for sale (these are the pews that came out of the Chapel). We want to offer them to church members before we post them on any other sites. We will sell the pews for $100 each (or best offer), and there are FOUR of them still available. The pews are 12' long, 34.5" tall, and 25" wide. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in purchasing one of these pews.
The Triumphant Quartet will be in concert Friday, February 24 at 7:00 PM. This concert is free, but a love offering will be received.
Remember to be working on memorizing this passage of scripture with your family over the next six weeks!
