This Week’s Need to Know – 10/31/2019

Sunday’s Text: Colossians 3:1-11Christ’s New Humanity
Taught By: Kenny Hall

Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend.  Don’t forget to set your clocks back Saturday night before you go to bed.

November 3 is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.  Millions of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ will never know the freedom we enjoy to gather and worship freely and peaceably.  On Sunday, we will take some time to pray for them, and you’ll have the opportunity to be connected with someone around the world following Christ in the face of persecution, so you can pray for them by name.  I hope you will begin now praying for our fellow believers who suffer for their faith.  To do so, click here, and you will be directed to a website that will help you begin your prayer journey for a persecuted believer.


Our annual meeting is scheduled for Sunday, November 10, at 6:00 PM.  If you are an active member of Big Woods, this is an important event on our calendar.  We have several positions for a vote of affirmation from the body including:

DEACON (3 year term): Rob Felmlee, Phil Leslie, Denny Marconi, Billy Powell, David Gray, Tom McCormick
TRUSTEE (3 year term): Gary Barrett
TREASURER (2 year term): Tom Stover
MODERATOR (1 year term): Drew Talbot
CHURCH CLERK (2 year term): Lori Bechdel

Copies of the proposed 2020 budget are available on the table in the back of the auditorium.

We will have two proposed bylaw updates for 2020:

1.) Address change to 241 S. Hanna St. Lock Haven, PA 17745
2.) Adding the following language in order to quickly fill an office in the event it is vacated:

In the event a church officer – Elder, Deacon/Deaconess, Trustee, Moderator, Treasurer, Church Clerk – cannot complete the term of office, the Elder Board, at their discretion, may appoint an interim officer to fulfill the rest of the term, or serve until the next annual business meeting, whichever comes first.
