From the Treasurer:  For unexplained reasons, checks written for the offering, January 16, 2022, do not show on your annual giving list.  If your giving record indicates you wrote a check that Sunday, please let me know & I will update your donation receipt. My apologies for this error. Delvin

Positions Available ~The Trustees have updated the job descriptions for the church secretary and grounds keeper positions and posted them on the bulletin board. Please contact one of the trustees if you are interested as we would like to fill both these positions as soon as possible. The Trustees also appreciate EVERYONE who allows their name on a ballot to serve the congregation in any of the positions open. Please, prayerfully consider whether the Lord is calling you into service on a particular committee or church position.

2023 Annual Membership Covenant Renewal:  Members of PVMC are called by our constitution to renew their covenant with the church annually and the elders are charged with maintaining the active membership list.  If you are a member and want to continue to be a part of Pleasant View Mennonite Church or would like to start the membership process to become a member, simply write your name on the green bulletin insert and put it in ballot box on the credenza.  Feel free to text, email or visit with an elder or Pastor Jeff.  There are extra inserts on the credenza.

Budget 2023:  The elders are reminding committees to look at their budgets for the upcoming year.  The goal is to be good stewards of the financial resources God has blessed us with so He may be glorified, and His Kingdom extended.  The most current monthly financial report is in the literature rack.

Business meeting meal The youth group and I.H.O.P. will be providing lunch prior to the business meeting! The meal, by donation, is  taco salad or a burrito, chips, dip, & dessert! Funds will be used for an Alaska mission trip! Thank you for supporting these young women and men! 

The Hydro Blood Drive is next Sun, February 12, from 11-2, at the Hydro Methodist church. Check the bulletin board for more information
