This Sunday
Fun and/or Games
On Sunday, January 23rd, Reverend Drew Johnston will lead us once more. “I once had a teacher who said, ‘If you aren’t having fun you aren’t doing it right.’ Life is serious, of course, and it’s fun and funny! Let’s make sure we can leave room for the wholeness of life.”

Congregational Meeting
Be sure join our appreciative interview leaders and Reverend Drew after service from 1pm-2pm in the Sanctuary. Results from our every-member interviews will be presented and we will discuss how the values and information shared will inform our updated mission and lay the groundwork for a congregational covenant. Nursery and child care will be provided.

David Traupman- Board President

The Ministerial Search Committee will be handing out survey forms before and after service this week to get an update on what the congregation is looking for in a settled minister. Please complete one and return it to the committee member who will be distributing them. The response this year was very good from interested ministers. Currently there are several talented pre-candidates.
