This week is national collection week for Samaritan's Purse "Operation Christmas Child". This year with the help of our congregation members and community support, we collected 82 boxes for children around the world. We will continue to collect through the end of the week if you have boxes yet to drop off, or if you would like to pick up a box to fill we currently have 4 left! Thank you to all who helped make this program such a success!
Annual Congregational Meeting is Almost Here!
Friday, November 22nd at 6pm
On Friday, November 22, we will gather at 6:00pm for our annual congregational meeting. This year we are meeting on a weeknight and sharing a meal so that we can gather more of our members for fellowship, report on our ministries, and vote on the spending plan and consistory nominations for elders and deacons. We'll be providing a base meal, and inviting members to bring potluck dishes to round out the meal. We hope that even if you don't have time to prepare anything, you will come! Following the meal we will provide a breakout for children. We'll review our worship and children's ministry, youth ministry and food pantry, caregivers and Stephen ministry, volunteer hosting and Family Promise, along with a look at the new RCA Transformed and Transforming vision.
Consistory nominees will be announced prior to the meeting, and the spending plan for 2014 will be available starting Sunday, November 10th. Mark your calendars now and begin to pray for our gathering to be one of encouragement, celebration and commitment. Please let the church office know if you plan on attending and whether you'll be bringing a dish to share.
