Instead of transferring all of the numbers over from one service to the other we are asking for people to sign up again due to the amount of time since the initial sign up. You can sign up to receive these notifications
http://edgertonfrc.org/textnotifications or by texting efrc to 84576. You can also sign up by putting your name on the sign up sheet in the narthex.

On Monday, January 14 at 6:30 p.m., First Christian Reformed church will be showing the movie "LIKE ARROWS," FamilyLife's first feature film that shows the challenges & Joys that come with raising children through a journey that unfolds over 50 years. It is an EXCELLENT movie for everyone to watch! Come and see this film & invite your friends! Parenting is an exciting adventure, full of twists and turns, but sometimes it feels like you don't know where your headed, or you're just making it up as you go along. The Bible speaks to issues of the heart, and as we will explore in this Bible study, it will equip and transform the hearts of both parents & children. The Movie Like Arrows will be a kickoff for an 8 week
Bible Study, called "The Art of Parenting." The Bible study will be held in our church on Monday Nights starting at 6:30 pm on January 21st. People expecting to be parents, current parents, and parents of grown children are all encouraged to attend! This is a great Bible Study for everyone as we aim our
children's heart toward God! For more info, please contact Jon or Kelsey Schmidt 507.227.8570
EHS will be using the social hall for testing on Wednesday, January 30 from 8:00-2:00 p.m. Please avoid coming to church during this time.
