1. New Church Building Update
The Building Committee is excited to share that they have made significant progress on the design of our
new church facility. After countless hours of dialogue between the Building Committee and various
groups, including Aspen, the subcommittees, church leadership and many of you, they would like to
review the current plans for the new building with the congregation. Please mark your calendar for
Tuesday evening, February 17th for this presentation at the Fellowship Hall. A general overview will
be provided from 6:30 to 7:15. Following this overview, the congregation will be able to visit various
display stations to better understand the details for some key areas in the new church (e.g., the
sanctuary, Sunday School, kitchen and dining room, fellowship area, etc.). Each of these display stations
will be manned by Building Committee and subcommittee members who have participated in developing
the design for their respective area. Since this is such an important milestone for our church, babysitting
services will be provided so all can attend. As always, please remain diligently prayerful for all involved
so we can esteem each other and work together in peace and harmony, and God can be glorified.

Today and February 8 will be our collection for National World Relief. The fund is established to provide
