Congregational Meeting & Potluck
January 13th following the worship service. Please bring a dish to pass during the potluck prior to the meeting.

Micro Enterprise
Cassie has asked us to again save wine bottles and candle wax. These items are transformed into cutting boards and fire starters. You may bring the items to church where they will be picked up on Monday nights. Thanks for your help!

Altar Flowers
Many of our members would like to purchase flowers for the altar to mark a special occasion. The Altar Guild is beginning a new process which we hope will be easier for all. To have flowers for your special occasion please contact Shirley Whipple. Please provide her with the announcement you would like in the bulletin. The flowers will be $25 (please pay Shirley). If you would like to order the flowers and pay the florist directly, please do. We kindly request that the flowers be at the church in the refrigerator by noon on Saturday. Thank you for your support!
