Sunday Morning Treats
We've changed the way members help with Sunday treats.  Our goal each week is 16 dozen cookes or bars, yet that amount is too much for many bakers.  Now the goal is to get multiple bakers to donate smaller amounts yet still get our 200 treats.
Can you provide, say, 4 dozen cookies?  Sign up on the clip board on the treat table in the narthex.  When four bakers sign up, each has less work, yet we'll have plenty of treats.
For the non-bakers, you can provide all the treats with a donation of $25 to the church.  There's also a canister for donations on the table.

All Saint's Day
Sunday November 4th, 2018

We will remember church members who have
passed since last November.


Two effective staff members have submitted their resignations.
Terry Tackett, our office manager, and Chandra Deprez, our Director of Sunday School, are each stepping down.  The Staff Parish Relations Committee will be posting these open positions and interviewing as soon as possible.
Terry has been our office manager and treasurer over the past 13 years.
Chandra has worked at the church for two.  Chandra's other job is working full time at the high school library.
Pastor Randy noted how grateful he is for the work of these women.
"Not only do they have the skills for the jobs, but the personalities, too.  They are effective and good to work with.  They've both taught me more about how ministry can be done - creatively and effectively - that I would not have created on my own".


Volunteer Spotlight for October

In October we recognize the dedicated people who volunteer
to read scripture at our worship services, serve on the finance committee, count our weekly offering, and the trustees.  Thank you so much for your time and hard work.

If you would like to read scripture on a Sunday, please call Kathy Chenous 558.8464.  She does a great job in scheduling our readers. 

If you would like to help with our finance committee, talk to John Daane.  The finance committee meets on the second Monday of each month.  They pray about our finance, monitor the income and expenses.  They help create our budget so that we are intentional about our ministries each year.  You do not have to be a financial wizard to serve on the finance committee.  A curious mind is very good for this.

The trustees manage our building for the purpose of ministry.  Wayne Schwartz is the head of trustees.  They do everything from painting the halls to repaving the parking lot.  Well they don't do those things, but they know people that do.

To honor and thank all these dedicated volunteers for all they
do, we will be serving cake between service on
October 28th, 2018.

We invite you to join us 
for worship.
Sundays at 8:00, 9:30 & 10:45 am
Sunday School at 9:15 am

Jesus said, 

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life."

Our church exists so that all people might find the way,

fellowship and worship 
we strive to bring the joy of knowing Christ to our members and community.
