This year’s Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday, November 12th at 10:30 a.m. in the church  sanctuary.  We will worship in a unified fashion at 9:00 a.m. either in our traditional or New Day congregations, and then will gather in the sanctuary for the 10:30 a.m. meeting.  A Sunday School experience will be offered for all non-confirmed children and youth.  Confirmed youth will be serving as tellers at the meeting, so we hope to see many join us.  Following the 10:30 a.m. meeting we will have a modest coffee hour in the narthex for those wishing to stay and chat for a few minutes.  It is a great way to get to talk with people you might not normally see, because you  worship at different services. At this year’s meeting we will conduct typical business such as approving the 2018 budget, electing congregational officers and council members, and receiving a few reports from some congregational committees and leaders. You should be here for two reasons: (1) We need a quorum to conduct business; and (2) It is your responsibility to take ownership for these items which are entrusted into the hands of the congregation gathered at this meeting.  We hope to see you on November 12th.



    No Bible Study on Wednesday, October 25th.   We will continue on Wednesday, November 1st from 9:30-11:00 a.m. in the Café.  Next week, November 1st, will be Introduction to the Gospel of Mark. Light snacks are provided … bring any translation of the Bible you prefer … friends are welcome. Pastor Ross leads the class.



    If you have a loved one who died the past year, and you would like their name remembered in the church prayers on All Saints Sunday (November 5th), please put their name in the remembrance book provided in the Narthex.



    In order to save on mailing costs, we are asking people to please pick up your Stewardship envelope from the table in the Narthex. As we prepare for our fall stewardship emphasis, we have included three items in this packet: a 2018 Financial Support Pledge Card, a Simply Giving Form that gives you one option for automated direct deposit contributions, and a Time and Talent Form for use as you consider volunteering in our ministries. Thank you for your cooperation .



    On October 29th, children in the Church Nursery will have a Halloween party.  Kids are invited to wear costumes.  Call Alyssa Kerper if you have any questions.
