News & Upcoming
Church Officer Nominations
Deadline Sunday, October 4
As a church, we have many joys and challenges ahead in the next three years. It's time to nominate new members for our leadership teams of deacons and elders for the Class of 2018, plus lay members for next year's Officer Nominating Committee (write ONC along with the nominee's name on the nomination form). Elections will be forthcoming at a Congregational Meeting. Boxes for nominations are in the Narthex and Welcome Center.
Thriving and Surviving
Thursday, October 1, 7:00 p.m.
If you are the mother of a young child (or a mother to be), join us in Room 201. Facilitated by Dr. Sarah Juul, the mother of a young child and perinatal psychiatrist in private practice, we will discuss baby nurture, life changes, and coping and adapting resources. Child care will be provided, but children are welcome. RSVP to Ellen Behm.
