Church Council Welcomes Your Ideas
Our Church Council will be meeting in early February for their annual workshop/meeting. They welcome any input from the congregation. Please submit any ideas or concerns to Congregational President, Paul Herman – email@example.com or place in his church mailbox prior to February 3.
Lenten Supper Hosts Needed
Ash Wednesday is on February 14 which means 7:00pm midweek services will begin at that time. We hope to have supper hosts for the 6:00pm meals prior to services. The February 14 supper will be hosted by Joanna Mission Circle and the March 21 supper will be hosted by the Church Councilmen. Dates open are: February 21, 28, March 7 and 14. Please contact the church office if you, your family, your church group or committee would like to host a supper. Free-will offerings are taken to cover meal expenses. If you have never hosted a meal before, give it a try. If kept simple, they are easy to do and provide an opportunity for church fellowship.
