Sound Training: After worship on Sunday, February 12th, Daniel White will conduct a training time for everyone who assists with our sound team. We are looking for a few more people to help. No experience is necessary--just a willingness to learn. Contact Daniel White at dwwhite@me.com for more details.

Deacond Ordination & Reception: We will ordain our newly-elected deacons (Andrew Bleckley, David Boyce, Patrick Shay, and Blake Stack) at this Sunday's service. A reception will be held immediately after the service downstairs in the fellowship hall. Please bring an appetizer-type finger food (no pork, no shellfish).

Mercy Fund — THIS SUNDAY: As this is the last Sunday of the month, we will be taking contributions to our Mercy Fund. The Mercy Fund is kept separate from our regular budget and is used to provide financial support to members of our congregation and community who are in need. Please prayerfully consider what you might be willing to contribute

2011 Giving Receipts: The majority of receipts outlining 2011 giving were emailed out to individual households last Friday; those for whom we don't have an email address will be mailed this week. If you have questions about your receipt or need further documentation, please contact Val at val@citychurchrva.com.
