Weekly News for May 17, 2017

Congregational Meeting
A reminder !!! What are your thoughts, opinions, concerns, about the changing chicken pie supper scenario our church has hosted for many years ? Rev. Nancy would like to hear from as many of us who have thoughts, one way or the other, about this. This is not an official voting meeting…..just gathering information so that we end up making a well informed decision. There are two (2) significant areas of concern….the financial impact and the community piece. More on these Sunday. Hope you can help us out by attending this meeting. Thank you.
