Six Week Bible study: Come join us on Tuesday evenings, January 15 - February 19, 7-8:15 pm for a study of Adam Hamilton's book, Unafraid. The book is designed to help us find a sense of calm and hope even in the most difficult aspects of life. Adam Hamilton is a popular United Methodist pastor and author. Books will be available from the Pastor beginning on Sunday, January 6.

Interfaith Pot-luck and Game Night On January 31, 5:30-7:30 pm, our church will host an interfaith gathering designed to help us get to know our neighbors of other faiths in the community. Pizza will be provided and you are asked to bring a vegetarian side dish, soup or chili. Games for all ages will be available, and there will also be child care available in our nursery. This event is being sponsored by the Potsdam Interfaith Community (PIC), the council of congregational leaders in Potsdam. Mark your calendars!

Window Update: We are now looking at a mid-February installation date for our restored Mary and Jesus window. The company restoring the window had several setbacks through the fall, and was not able to honor the original installation date. Thank you to all those who generously contributed to the window repair. On the Sunday following the installation, we will bless and re-dedicate the window to the glory of God.

Every Friday, the neighborhood churches provide free lunch at First Presbyterian Church at noon. Helpers needed. Sign up on the clipboard on the fellowship hall piano.

We encourage donations to the "Cathy Frick Scholarship Fund", established by John and Christine Bruce to give graduating seniors a monetary award. (Please make checks payable to Potsdam UMC and write "Frick Scholarship" in the memo line.)

Nursery Care is available immediately following announcements, for infants through kindergarten age.

Upper Rooms (including large print) are available in the narthex. If possible, leave a dollar to help defray expenses, but please don't let lack of a dollar keep you from taking a copy of the magazine.

In the event of a weather-related or other emergency worship service cancellation, please find information on TV Channel 7 or 5, radio stations 99.3 or NCPR or the church's Facebook page.
