Audra Fogle; guest speaker 18 Jan 2015


Attached is Audra’s bio. She is a dynamic and fun person to be around. She is a very serious and passionate person with a mission. Her lesson this Sunday is titled, "God’s Welcome".

David Wiggs moved Audra from the Youth Ministry to the Welcoming Ministry for our church for a specific reason and purpose. We as Boston Avenue UMC members will want to hear, learn and support our church in this new approach to "open arms" for our members.

See you Sunday at 9:45.

Be Happy and Share that Happiness with others,

It was good seeing you all on Sunday. Attached you will find our weekly newsletter.

A BIG REMINDER: I/we need a Reporter for our class, it is a very easy but important job to “capture” a few notes from the class and submit an article to the BAUMC staff for inclusion into “The Word” publication. Sharon Earley has the scoop on this position. Let Sharon and/or I know if you would be interested in this post and try it for awhile.

Go in Peace, Do Good and be Nice to others,

Jim or Lynn-

My brother’s wife, Donna Ward, passed away peacefully Monday after a valiant ten year struggle with a cancerous brain tumor. Funeral will be Saturday in Wyoming so David and I are leaving Friday.

Prayers are what we need most right now. Lots of family members are traveling for her service. Just because you ‘know’ something is imminent, it doesn’t make it any easier. Many thanks,

Brenda Worthington

2015 Roster and Photo Link

Attached is the 2015 class roster and a roster for our out of town members who want to stay connected. Tara Harl can be removed as she just let us know she is moving out of town next week. If there are any additional corrections please email them to my home address: pglow and I will send out a corrections list.

This is the link to the Maranatha Members’ Photos:

The photo link is a private link so not accessible by someone doing a search. You can also view it by going through the Maranatha website and the members only link. Last year the names appeared below the photo. It appears you now have to click on the photo and the name appears in a new window. It might be different in different browsers.

Happy New Year
