Lay Led Service Tonight
Warren McWilliams will be the speaker in the Lay Led service at 6:00 tonight.

Couples Check Up
Canaan Crane will be facilitating a Couples Check Up opportunity.  This is for engaged and married couples who are looking to identify and lean into the strengths in their relationship.  This group will meet for lunch followed by a two-hour session beginning on February 3.  The other sessions will be March 3 and March 31.  The cost is $35, and it is open to any engaged/married couple.  This could be a great way to introduce couples who don’t currently attend UBC to our church.  Invite friends to come with you.  If you have questions, please see Canaan or Justin. 

Covenant Groups Return
Covenant groups will resume on January 27.  If you are interested in participating, please contact Justin. 

Shawnee Arts Council Note
Information from Shawnee Arts Council about an excellent way to support our local art teachers….
Shawnee Public School art teachers have generated lists of the supplies they need (mostly from Amazon).  They have posted these lists under the names of their schools in our central supplies drive hub on Facebook found at Shawnee Area Schools Art Supplies Drive. These are the things they specifically know they can use.  Buying items from the lists made by teachers is a direct way to assist our poorly-funded art teachers. 

Mid-Winter Retreat
The youth Mid-Winter retreat is January 18-20.   The group will leave the church at 6:00 p.m. on Friday and return around 10:30 a.m. on Sunday (in time to attend the second service).  Cost is $65 per student and payment is due January 16. 

MFuge Camp
Youth MFuge Camp is scheduled for June 19-23.  A deposit of $50 is due by February 1.  Any questions may be addressed to Linsey.
