CDS AVAILABLE OF SERVICES —
We have CDs available of our services for our homebound members. Please let the church office know if you would like to start receiving them.

SHARE YOUR PASSION
We hope to offer a variety of classes for people of all ages this fall, designed around what you love to do. The possibilities could include things such as art, music, cooking, fitness, softball, reading, writing, history, astronomy, woodworking, needlepoint, gardening, photography, etc. If you have a passion that you are willing to share, contact the church office and let us know how many weeks you’ll need. We’ll promote your idea to the church and community, and if there’s enough interest, we’ll schedule you to begin after Labor Day.

SUMMERTIME FLOWERS FOR ALTAR
Volunteers are needed to provide flowers for the altar for the Traditional service over the next few weeks. Please call the church office if you would like to help.

DO WE HAVE YOUR FULL NAME?
The pastoral staff sometimes runs into a situation, when visiting hospitalized church members, of not being able to locate a member because the member’s full name isn’t known. This is especially a problem if everyone calls you by your middle name (for instance, “Bob” rather than your full name of “William Robert”). If you think you have a name that could be confusing in situations such as this, please contact the church office to let us know.
