Welcome to all visitors.  You are invited to stand during the service and introduce yourself, or to have someone else introduce you.  We want to give you one of our welcome packs and therefore encourage you to fill out the card and tear off the badge, write your name on it and wear it so that we can greet you during and after the service. Note that there is a wheelchair entrance from the back parking lot through the double doors. The church has a wheelchair in the back of the sanctuary for anyone wishing to assist a person coming to a meeting. Rest rooms for the disabled are available in the Preschool wing.
 
The church office humbly requests that recipients of offering envelope booklets please use their pre-printed envelopes, or if you are using one from the pew pocket, write on the envelope, the amount given, your name, and the number you have been assigned. We look forward, with gratitude, to your usual cooperation.
 
The members of the church staff wish for everyone, a blessed and peaceful rest- of-the-year. We are grateful for another year in God’s service. We look forward to the New Year, putting our lives in the hand of the One who knows the future, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

Justice Ministry Announcement: Our newest project will involve all the Florida D.A.R.T. justice ministries working together on problems related to mass incarceration. The Jobs Committee is continuing to work to get the Jobs Ordinance passed for the unemployed in Broward County.  If you, or anyone you know would be willing to speak about being unemployed at a Broward County Commission meeting or the Nehemiah Action in April, please talk to either Donna or Pastor David.  We will keep you informed of the meeting dates as they occur. The Jobs Committee is continuing to work with Commissioner Holness on the Jobs Ordinance for Broward County. The letters to the commissioners are at each entrance to the sanctuary.  A Bold Justice member will be there to help you. If you have not yet signed one, please do. These letters are being taken to each commissioner daily, as they are received.
