Weekly News for August 10, 2016

This and That

1) So ! Scheduling a council meeting this month has been a bit of a challenge. We have changed the meeting date to the 21st, a Sunday, after church. It would be great if the chairs could be there, but if you can’t could you please arrange for another member of your committee to sub for you? There are a few items that need to be addressed fairly soon. We will save the ” What are we looking forward to for our church?”, for a less busy time this fall.

If you are around on the 18th you may want to catch the “Concert on the Village Green” featuring the Greely High School State Championship Jazz Band. They are under the direction of Kevin Rollins…..local boy and teacher at Greely.

2 ) Remember when NYCC had the best float in the FunDay parade? If we did one now it would be a good way to get our church out there. There are lots of new folks in town, a show of support for the community, “see, we are not just a stodgy tired church…..we have fun, too ! Surely we could get a pick- up truck or a wagon/trailer ……….select a theme and away we go. Any takers to head this off?

3) The church looks amazingly beautiful !
