Housing Needed
Rob Terrell needs a guest house for a week or two to rent. Please contact him at rct5555@msn.com if you have any possibilities or questions!

BE-ing Series for Children
Our youth ministry team is on the third week of our BE-ing Series, a four-week series for children during the Sunday evening service. The name of this series is derived from Joshua 1:9: BE courageous, BE strong, do not BE afraid, do not BE discouraged.  Children will spend the first 45 min with our teens and YM team while parents are at the 5pm service, then join back in the worship service for communion time and the last 15 minutes of worship. Nursery will be provided for children younger than kindergarten. For details or questions, contact dusty.breeding@pepperdine.edu.

Youth Group Family Devo
Mark your calendars for Sunday night, January 27, for the next Family Devo at the Breeding’s home. As a reminder, all youth group families are invited! Siblings, parents, grandparents, pets! Ok…no pets, but all other human family members. 6:30-8pm.

All-Church Super Bowl Party
It doesn’t matter which of the following you are looking forward to: cheering for the Rams, cheering for the Patriots, watching expensive commercials, eating Lee’s slow-roasted pork, taking beaded necklaces from people who aren’t paying attention to what they say, watching Gladys Knight and Maroon 5 perform, and/or enjoying time fellowship with friends from Church. Join us for our annual Super Bowl party at the Morgans’ house (1708 Shady Brook Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA) on Sunday, Feb. 3rd at 3:00 p.m. Please bring a snack to share—pulled pork sandwiches and drinks will be provided. An intergenerational flag football game in the Morgans’ driveway will precede the big game. Show up at 1:30 if you’d like to play!

Wedding Shower Brunch
The wedding shower brunch for Shelby Warwar Emmer will be at 10:00am on Saturday, March 2 at the home of Patty Atkisson.  Donations for the money tree may be given to Patty Atkisson.  Ladies please join us to celebrate Shelby and hear about the highlights of the wedding.

Prayer Ministry
If you would like to request prayer specifically from the prayer ministry team, please contact Kari at kari_coppinger@yahoo.com or talk to her at church. There will be a short meeting at the front of the auditorium after morning worship January 27, with anyone who is interested in joining this team. Email Kari if you are interested and can’t attend. Finally, let’s join together in this prayer. Stop what you’re doing for 30 seconds and truly pray this. Praise God for some specific way he has empowered you in the past or pray for someone with whom you want to share the good news of Jesus.
