Weekly News for March 7

Council meeting scheduled for tonight has been canceled. We have rescheduled it for Sunday after church, although there may be another meeting
scheduled, we’ll do the best we can. We don’t have a huge agenda………1) establishing a master meeting schedule, ( which we need badly) 2) prepping somewhat for the dinner/conversation meeting on the 16th.

Easter Morning Breakfast !!!!!! I usually don’t ask for help on this event but folks always ask “what can I do?” So, my thoughts…….I want to bring delicious bagels and cream cheese, bacon and sausage. Will a few of you fill in with breakfast casseroles, fruit , juice or whatever might be enjoyed by about 35-40′ hungry for breakfast’ eaters? I’ll do set up and dishes and I know some of you will help with clean-up! Right? Jeanne

Due to the snow storm, Thursday afternoon Bible study will not meet this week. We will start on Thursday March 15th at 2pm
