Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    Tomorrow, Friday, February 4, 2022, we are forecasted to get a layer of ice that will make travel difficult. Because of the rain today, and a quick drop in temperature overnight, combined with freezing precipitation, the department of public works in most local towns won’t be able to keep up and treat the roads. For this reason, tomorrow the church office is closed and all Friday Night activities are moving online. So I’ll see you online tomorrow night for Bible Study!
       Please do stay safe. If you are going to drive, drive more slowly and give plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you. Otherwise, stay home and wait for the weather to improve or for road crews to treat the roads. We can serve those who serve us (the department of public works) by staying off the roads tomorrow.

This Week (Feb. 4–Feb. 10, 2022):

1. Tomorrow, on Feb. 4, 2022, we will have Friday Night Bible Study. Join us from 7:30-9:30 as we take time to sing, share, and study the topic of how Jesus is “The Ruler who Cares for His people.” If you have time saved due to not commuting, read Micah 5 and Matthew 2:1-12 in preparation. Due to the weather, join online (There will be no in-person activities at CBCGL).
