GOT COOKIES?
We need to create a volunteer list of folks who are willing to BAKE or BUY cookies (or desserts) for our upcoming Fellowship Hours. The more volunteers we have the better. Marsha will call you in advance to get you scheduled prior to the need.
Remember, if many participate no one person is overly burdened. Call or email the church office to get your name on the list.

MANY MORE COOKIE VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED!
Current Number of Cookie Volunteers - 2
FELLOWSHIP HOUR
Now that things are getting back to normal, we would like to restart our fellowship hour this Fall after morning worship.
In order to do so we need some volunteers to prepare for it and to staff it. If you are willing to help in this ministry of hospitality, please contact the church office.

Marsha Mossgrove, Debbie Spies and Sherry Jacobsen have come forward to help. We need one more volunteer. Is it you?
