From Interim Senior Pastor Search Committee
As the fall moves quickly to winter, we continue to actively pursue candidates not only to lead our congregation in programs and worship, but also to support and guide us as we transition to new leadership. We are prayerfully and thoughtfully considering those candidates who will best serve our church as we continue to be an active community of faith based on Christian fellowship, service, and love.
Wednesday Night Fellowship
Through the church survey and other means, we have heard the desire for more fellowship time together. We invite you to join us for dinner on Wednesday evenings in 2019 for food and casual conversation. While we will still host programs after dinner from time to time, we encourage you to use this informal time to catch up with one another and make new friends. Wednesday Night Fellowship will resume on January 16th at 6:00 p.m. We hope to see you there!
Congregational Meeting
A Congregational Meeting has been called by the Session for Sunday, January 13th, at the 11:00 a.m. worship service for the purpose of receiving the 2019 Budget as information and holding the Annual Meeting of the Corporation.
Lunch Bunch
On Tuesday, January 15th, Lunch Bunch will take a tour of The Commons, our new Prayer Room, lead by Carrie Myers and Hunter Morrison. Please make your lunch reservations by noon Monday, January 14th.
