ADULT BIBLE CLASS, which is entitled, “Prophet, Priest, and King” is a study on 1st and 2nd Samuel.

WE ARE CURRENTLY RAISING FUNDS to replace the sign on the NE corner of the church with a digital sign. Donations may be put in the offering plate (clearly marked for the digital sign) or dropped off at the church office. Total collected so far is $19,702.74. Our goal is to collect $27,500.00 so the sign can be read from both directions.

ALASKA ARCTIC GREETINGS from the Lilienkamps! At Thanksgiving, we have been in Anchorage two months already, and winter has definitely arrived in the Last Frontier. The sun is rising after 9:30 a.m. and setting before 4:00 p.m. and we are losing daylight at the rate of about 4.5 minutes a day! Temperatures are about 20 degrees below normal. However, the warmth of the love of Christ is filling our hearts as we get reacquainted with friends made in the past and get to know others anew. The love of Jesus is a joy to share at all latitudes! We thank you for your prayers and you are in our prayers as well. We would love to hear from you, so if you still do snail mail, our mailing address is 12450 Elmore Road, Anchorage, AK 99516. In Christ's love, Carl and Darlene Lilienkamp
