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.

Council News
I will try as succinctly as possible, to fill you in on any of the April 27th Council’s meeting discussions. The status of Friday Lunch and Chicken Pie Supper are at a crossroads, although Friday Lunch may be under control, with different folks taking the lead on a monthly basis. Chicken Pie however is at a critical point. How much longer can we do this? We are hoping to get some answers at the congregational meeting on May 21 to get any and all thoughts out on this matter. Between it being a significant fundraiser there is the “community” piece. It’s very involved and will take a good healthy discussion with as many as possible expressing their ideas. Hope you can be there.

There is a lot of old, old, old music which has been cleaned out of the closets in the upper room. It was decided that nobody would want it and so it needs TO GO ! Dumpster or recycle ?. Anyone interested in taking care of this ?

The hardest news to hear, at least for me, was Janine expressing her need to let go of the Sunday School. She is not celebrating this decision, but is “done” as they say today. This is sad for our church, but we are incredibly thankful for all she has done for the past too many years. The kids have been blessed beyond words to have had Janine as their teacher, We will be working very hard. to figure out where we go from here.

June 11th is Children’s Sunday.

May is toothpaste and deodorant month for our food pantry giving. Also any paper goods ,ie TP, paper towels, are always needed .By the way our church is so good about seeing that these needs are met. A huge thank you.

Karen B. reports that the Mission Comm. is thoughtfully working out the details how best to disperse there available funds.
