Funds Needed for
Organ Valve Replacement

in the first quarter of 2019 before Easter.
If you are interested in contributing,
please submit your offering to the SWIM
organ maintenance account 48-18.
Thank you for maintaining an
instrument we use to glorify God.
If you have any questions about the repairs, please contact

New Coffee Maker Please!
We thank Kathy Seffrood for making
coffee on Sunday mornings, and she is
stepping down from this responsibility.
Three options for us:
- volunteers a month at a time
(ex. one person for all of Jan and
another for Feb ... etc.)
- volunteers for a regular Sunday
(ex. on the first Sunday, another
person on the second Sunday .. etc.)
- no more coffee (gasp! :0)
Training is provided. It takes about 30
minutes each week and can be set up
as early as Friday. Kathy also helped
arrange for treats. Can you make
treats or provide a $30 donation to
pay for treats?

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.
