Annual Meeting 2013
 
   Sunday, June 23rd
     
It's time again for our Annual Meeting! 
  
It is very important for as many members as possible to attend, as we need a quorum. 
 
We vote on very important business of the church, including the Budget for the upcoming fiscal year and the Nominating Ballot. 
  
The meeting will be held immediately after church. 
Please plan to attend.  Thank you!!

Pumpkin Patch Meeting
 June 9th
   
We need to have a congregational meeting to make a decision about doing the Pumpkin Patch this year. 
  
We need to let the pumpkin organization know if we are going to participate as soon as possible.
  
We would like to know if the congregation is in favor of this and are willing to volunteer for staffing the shifts. 
  
The meeting will be held immediately after church on Sunday, June 9. Please plan to attend! Thank you!!
