The list of Elders’ families has been posted on the Elder's bulletin board. If anyone would like to switch to a different Elder family, please let Ed Branhof know and you will be changed. We have reviewed the church constitution and have suggested some changes to the By Laws and presented to the council. The changes will be voted on by the congregation at the next voter’s meeting. Don’t forget March is a 5 Sunday month. Bring your donations for Serve, Inc.

This year’s Easter Breakfast will be handled a bit differently than in recent years. Rather than requesting donations of food products to be prepared at the church, this year’s Easter Breakfast will be more of a potluck affair. Those attending are asked to bring food and or beverage items that are already prepared. If you will be preparing your item(s) in the church kitchen, please plan to arrive early enough to prepare it/them. There will be a sign-up sheet on the table behind the pews. Please sign up in advance and indicate what item(s) you will be providing. If you have any questions, please ask Travis or Vanessa Queen.
Electronic gifts are fast and secure, and they reduce administrative costs, allowing more of every dollar to fund the important work we are called to do. • Schedule and manage recurring donations • Make recurring or one-time donations to special funds (e.g. Parsonage Repair Loan and/or Mission funds) If you would like to give electronically, contact Sandy Edwards or get an Authorization Form from Rita Newman in the church office. GivePlus is Powered By Vanco Payment Solutions.
We are committed to making improvements over the next year to make our website a great place for information as well as a location that the community can explore. The goal is to be a window into our congregation. We are striving to include audio of not only sermons but eventually bible class to assist in connecting absent members or provide visitors a chance to see what we are all about. Any feedback or ideas about ways for improvement, please submit to Pastor Heaton.
