Scripture Readers Needed for Winter Services: Would you be interested in reading on Sunday Morning? You may sign up on the list on the Circles of Service Board or by calling the Church office - now updated for the winter months! For convivence sake the season/theme of each Sunday is listed, if possible. On Thursday afternoon the Church Office will communicate with you and provide you with the specific text(s) you will be asked to read, including the possibility of a selection of modern wisdom in the form of a quote from a current text. The Worship and Sanctuary Committee thanks you for sharing in this ministry. Annual Report - it's not too early!: Annual report time will arrive sooner than we think!
