Camp Northward
• This time of year becomes a real mental challenge to overcome the environment. The next time you’re searching for something to spark your day, try praising the Lord. Like the modern day milk commercial, ‘it’ll do a body good.’
• Kids, get ready. Just around the corner will be the JC Training Days, a brand new event ‘Launch’ and Middle School Velocity. Be watching your mailbox and church bulletin boards soon for all the latest information.

 •The Holy Spirit was so real Sunday morning that it spontaneously turned into a healing service.  No one wanted to leave as the presence of the Lord filled the place and there was such a fullness of joy.
• Jan. 30 - At the 11 a.m. service, the church will be accepting new members with lunch following.

• This week the church will look at its grip on families. The book of Psalms says that unless the Lord builds the house, those who labor in it, will labor in vain. If Jesus Christ is the center of attention, he will allow you to deal with whatever comes your way. A family experiences many stages; starting with the union of two, continuing with addition of children, the child rearing years and finally the twilight years. Strive to keep the Lord as the center of attention.

First Love
Community Fellowship
• Sunday was a great day to go over the river and under bridges of Cincinnati to minister to the homeless. It is a great eye-opener to reach out to these people who for what ever reason have found themselves on hard times. Not all people who are homeless are people addicted to drugs or alcohol, but people who have lost everything because of the economy. Whatever the case may be everybody could use a helping hand now and again and everybody needs Jesus.
• Brother David began a series of messages that will take us back 2,000 years to stir our hearts to get busy doing what we were left here to do in the 21st century. You can find our Sunday messages on firstloveky.org

• Pastor Pullens preached “Why sit ye here until ye die” (II Kings 7:1). People go through trials, not so they can be harmed and hurt, but so God can mold them into the vessel that He can use. Don’t be overtaken by your dilemma. Its time to arise, stand up and fight for the victory. Remember we stand our tallest when we are on our knees in prayer. Prayer will sustain you through your battle.
