    The food pantry is open every Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. to serve the community.

    This week, we served 42 families and 181 people.

    Please bring your extra paper bags and (dozen only) egg cartons to church this Sunday. Thanks for your help.

    ►Fellowship deacons invite your help 

    The fellowship deacons, Chris Rogers and Kathy Menk, would like to give you an opportunity to help out with Sunday fellowship time immediately following Sunday worship. We usually provide a sweet treat (doughnuts, cookies, cake, bread, bars, etc.) and a healthy treat (deviled eggs, cheese and crackers, assorted fruit and/or vegetable tray, etc.). Possibilities are not limited to these suggestions. And homemade is not a requirement. Store bought goodies are just as appreciated as homemade. A sign-up sheet is provided in the fellowship hall if you would like to sign up to bring something.

    Thank you in advance from the fellowship team.

    Thank you . . .

    . . . for the gracious goodbyes you have shared with me over the past weeks, and especially for the farewell reception last Sunday. What a blessing that so many of you were able to stay for cake and conversation. Keep meeting together, as we read in the book of Hebrews: “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together.”
