NLICC hosting local Presbytery Meeting on Saturday, January 10th – Women’s Service Opportunity
The Session has asked the women of the church to provide a light breakfast and lunch for our presbytery leaders on Saturday, January 10th. In lieu of a Women’s Prayer Breakfast in January, we ask that you pray about preparing or purchasing food to feed our leaders while they meet together. We’ll also need volunteers to set out each of the meals and clean up. Please contact Kathryne Marple if you can help.

If you are interested in being on the planning committee, please contact Christine Fulcrod. The first meeting was held December 14, so it is not too late to join. Also let the office know if you would like to give a brief testimony during a Sunday service between January and July sharing how being a part of New Life has helped you to grow spiritually.
Do you have a heart for missions? The Missions Committee is looking for new members!
They meet once a month on a Thursday evening at 7:00 pm. The committee is starting to plan for next year’s March conference and is a bit short-handed right now. Please contact the office for more information if you are interested.
Fredericksburg Pregnancy Center (F.P.C) News
F.P.C. is always looking for volunteers, including Board Members. There are all kinds of volunteer projects including consultants, reception help, stuffing envelopes, etc. Board members are required to attend a monthly meeting and don’t need any experience as a board member, just a profession of faith in Christ and a desire to serve mothers and their babies in many areas. If you are interested or would like more information contact Eileen Roberts.
Several Afghan immigrant women are looking for work, especially in the area of housecleaning. None are believers yet, but they are at various places in their journeys toward Christ — and would benefit from more contact with Christians. Other variables are their English language abilities, skills, number of hours and pay needed, etc. Please contact Debra Smith to learn more.
Do you have a couple hours on a Friday afternoon you can spare? to fold bulletins after 1 pm some Friday. Takes about 2 hours (faster if you bring a friend!) Questions? Ask Pam in the office.
