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.

Signup sheet at the Information Center.

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".
