Welcome Howard and Cathy Wagler!  Howard and Cathy serve as Network Directors of South Central Mennonite Conference.  This weekend, their work has brought them to Oklahoma to lead our elders retreat which was held yesterday at Roman Nose State Park. 

Feeling discouraged, disenchanted, cynical and empty?  Gentle and Lowly, by Dane Ortlund, is written to help sinners and sufferers (all of us) better understand how Jesus feels about us.  The truth will encourage you!  Copies of Gentle and Lowly are available to everyone.  Pick up your copy today from the table in the foyer.  If you find it helpful, please pick up another copy to share.  We have plenty and will order more if necessary.  For those wanting to read the book, please consider reading it with others.

Bowling with Hope Is Alive PVMC and HIA are having a combined event at the Weatherford Bowling alley, January 22, from 4-6 pm. This is open to everyone.

Youth With A Mission (YWAM)  Francesca Schrock, daughter of Freeman and Margaret Schrock, has begun a five-month Discipleship Training program with YWAM in Louisville, Kentucky.  The program consists of two parts: three months of training at Louisville followed by two months of international outreach.  For the next three months, Francesca can receive encouragement from you at the following address:  For packages – Youth With A Mission, 3402 Goose Creek Rd, Suite B, Louisville, KY, 40241.  For letters – YWAM Louisville, P.O. Box 22185, Louisville, KY, 40252.

Do you like to listen? We need listeners for  children to say Bible verses to on Wednesday evening. Learning verses is part of the Bible Memory Program and helps them go to camp in the summer. Please contact Cindy Hunt or Faith Slagell if you are interested.

Is God calling you? As Angel Tree coordinator for the last 12 years, I can tell you the rewards far outweigh the work. If God is nudging you, please, let us know. The deadline for signing our church up for this year is quickly approaching.  I will assist you if you need me, in any way. If you have questions,  please ask Kathie Switzer

Budget 2022:  As we anticipate 2022, the elders would like to remind committees to begin looking at their budgets for the upcoming year.  The goal is to be good stewards of the financial resources God has blessed us with so that He may be glorified, and His Kingdom extended.  The most current monthly financial report is in the literature rack just outside the sanctuary and opposite the restrooms.

Prayer List ~If you are not on the monthly prayer list, and want to be added, please tell Kathy Thomas.

Business meeting ~The annual business meeting will be Sunday, Feb 13.

(This meeting is open to anyone who wants to learn more about PVMC)

It is time to start thinking about where you would like to plug in at PVMC. Any committee with a term ending in 2021 is needing a member(s).  If you are interested in serving, please contact someone on a committee and let them know. Each committee is asked to submit a nominee before the meeting. Please give the nominee to one of the trustees or Kathy Thomas.

The 2021 business meeting minutes will be available next Sunday, January 16. The minutes will need approval at the business meeting.

Please give Kathy financial reports from individual bank accounts.
