decorators, to the Communion preparers and stewards, and to all the others. A special thank you to our
wonderful staff: Pastors Brody and Mike, Heather, Grant, Laurie, and Julie who designed a meaningful variety of worship experiences. Thank you to all who participated in worship and gave of your time, talents and treasure.

Coordinating Our Building Use
Are you needing a place at the church for a committee meeting or event? Please note that ALL scheduling of the building's use must be cleared and scheduled through Julie in the church office. This is not a "permission" issue, but we do need this central location for keeping track of the building's activities (we are thankful to be able to host a growing number of Boy and Girl Scouts this year!). Just drop an email or phone the office (848-7213), so there are no surprises. Thank you!
