Weekly contact– January 18, 2018

Hello there,

There is a lot going on this Sunday.  We will be ordaining and installing our new elders and deacons at the first service.  The Chancel Bells will be playing at that service as well.  In between services, there will be a reception to honor Judy Chapman for 15 years’ service as our organist.  Pastor Beth is preaching on Jonah 3:1-5, 10 and Mark 1:14-20.  Her sermon title is “Called by God.”

Due to the weather, the Navigators postponed their planning potluck supper last Sunday.  So they will be meeting this coming Sunday, January 21st at 5:30 in the social hall.  Bring a dish to pass and lots of ideas.  Everyone is welcome.

Finally, the Annual Meeting of the Congregation will be on February 4th following the morning worship service.  The purpose of the meeting is to receive reports, hold a meeting of the corporation, and approve the Pastors’ terms of call.  There will be only one service that morning at 9:00, and we are delighted that the Rev. Andy Smothers will be our guest preacher.  You might remember that Andy was one of our seminary interns a few years ago.  Since he graduated and left us he has been involved in some very interesting ministries, and is about to launch on a new adventure.  I am certain you enjoy hearing what he has to say.

Stay in One Peace,
