SAY CHEESE!! This Sunday is Church Directory Photo Updates – All are encouraged to update their photos for our directory between 9:30-10:30AM in the Fellowship Hall. This directory is a great tool for all our members and there are a number of outdated photos in it. Please contact the church office with any questions, or if you can’t make this date and would like to schedule a photo for a different time. We are in need of one volunteer to assist Jane with organizing the process from 9:30-10:30 this Sunday. Please contact the office if you can help.
*Attention Parents – A reminder that the kids chorus will be singing during the 8:30 worship and as a prelude to the 10:30AM worship.
