Weekly News 1/18/12

Good Morning to you!
Alrighty, now we have some OR Sunshine!  'They' say through some of next week so that is good we sure need it.  Long dry spots in our spiritual lives are also needing a little of the Living Water to refresh and strengthen our resolve to be more like Him.  I just read somewhere, maybe Facebook, that the difference between the winners in one Olympic race was measured in the 100's of a second.  Amazing isn't it.  It just takes such little time to accomplish a lot, win the Gold!  So lets be rooting for each other as we make our way to the finish line, be faithful, true, bold, loving, kind, patient, etc.  Keep your focus on Him so you can be able to do those things He asks of us.  Have a wonderful, albeit wet, day!

So for the pastors who got the Pastor/Church list, I will resend it more complete!  I failed to but the associates on the list and will add E-mails.  If you have an associate that you would like to have on the Pastor/Church one page list please let me know by tomorrow (19th).  Thank you.

Sounds like Pastors and wives retreat went wonderfully well.  It also looks like you need to plan for next years in the same place.  Thank you to all who made this possible for our Pastors.  Fellowship Team you are doing a great job.

Pastors Tax Assistance for 2011
Pastor's have a little different way of filling out their taxes and not many tax folks understand the differences as most of you know.  Bruce Sloan sent an E-mail recently to I think all of you with a recommendation of a tax preparer who does.  If you did not get that E-mail and are interested I will be happy to forward it on to you. 

Correction - E-mail address is:
If you know of anyone who would like to get the SBA Weekly Newsletter please have them E-mail me at:  office@siskiyoubaptist.org  and I will be happy to add them to the list.  Just as easy to get off the list as well.
