Rev. Elam wants to assure he is available to all members of the Church when needed. His schedule is often filled with in-home and hospital visits, meetings with pastors and other matters of the church. He is available for appointments as needed and is always just a phone call away. However, if you want to just drop by, he makes a point to be in the office every Monday and Tuesday from 11-12 noon for visits, and is available at other times by appointment.

(adapted from the credo of Al-Anon)
JUST FOR TODAY:  I will live through THIS DAY ONLY.  I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow.  I will not set far-reaching goals or try to overcome all of my problems at once.
JUST FOR TODAY:  I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me.  If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine.
JUST FOR TODAY:  I will improve my mind.  I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.  I will not be a mental loafer.
JUST FOR TODAY:  I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable.  I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I’ll not speak ill of others.  I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking.  Just for today, I will refrain from improving anybody but myself. 
JUST FOR TODAY:  I will do something positive to improve my health. … I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it’s only around the block.
JUST FOR TODAY:  I will gather the courage to do what is right and take responsibility for my own actions.

In December we decorated the Church for Christmas. Thank You to everyone who helped decorate and un-decorate our Church. We had 43 poinsettias dedicated to loved ones.
The Christmas meal was great again! We had 53 people exchanging gifts, eating and having a good fellowship time! We took the leftovers to our shut-ins. Thank you for your support.
In January we un-decorated the Church. Several Men came and we appreciate your help.
For February we had a Valentine Meeting along with our lesson from “Love Carved in Stone.” Jackie did an excellent presentation about the gift of Sabbath.
All are welcome to join us for Ladies Circle!
I want to thank each of you who have helped with any or all of our projects. You make our Church very special, which makes it very easy to invite everyone I meet to God’s House at the end of the lane.
