Are you looking for a new way to get involved at church?

S.O.S. - Share Our Skills will now be meeting on the THIRD Saturday of each month to tackle fix-it projects around the church. The group meets at 8:30 a.m. for coffee and then works from 9:00 to Noon.

Only have an hour that day? No problem, just stop in and stay as long as you can. Many hands make light work.

The Worship Work Area requests your assistance in helping us understand what elements of worship provide you with a meaningful and rich experience. Please join us Sunday, August 20 and Sunday, October 15 for our final Worship Cafés following (abbreviated) worship services. The Cafés are a follow-up to our Worship Survey conducted earlier this summer and are an opportunity to engage in fellowship as we explore ideas around our worship experiences. The simple, guided questions shared in small groups allows each person to express his or her thoughts, and will help us discover together what is most meaningful to each other in the important area of worship.

Responses from the first Café, held July 16, are currently posted in the 2nd floor hallway by the pastors’ offices for all to review.

You are welcome to attend one, two or all of the cafés. We hope to see you there!
