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.
Please sign up for the trip to Hatsume Festival at Morikami Park in Delray Beach, Sunday March 29. The sign-up sheets are on the back table.
Justice Ministry Announcement: The Bold Justice Jobs Committee is asking you to save the following dates to attend the Broward County Commission meetings.  Those dates are Tuesday, February 11 @ 10:00am and Tuesday, February 25 @ 2:00pm.  Please ask everyone you know who is daytime available to attend these meetings.  On February 11, there will be a vote by the commissioners to put the Jobs Ordinance on the agenda for a final vote on February 25.  We will all come dressed in red shirts or blouses. We will sit together to show the Bold Justice power in numbers. The address of the Broward County Governmental Center in Fort Lauderdale is 115 South Andrews Avenue and the telephone number is 954-357-6789. When you enter the building tell the guard that you are going to the Commission meeting.  He will direct you to go to the 4th floor.  Be prepared to show identification.  You will then go through a safety checkpoint before entering the commission chambers. It is extremely important now that we show our support to Commissioner Holness and this Job Ordinance.  Mark your calendar and be ready to attend these two meetings with your Church members and friends.
On the back table there is a new BOLD Justice letter to be taken to the Broward County commissioners. Please take a few minutes to sign a copy and give it to the Bold Justice member waiting at the door. Your signature helps to promote the hiring of Broward County residents. We appreciate your support.
