Beginning Sunday, January 5 at 11:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall, we will begin a course on Spiritual Growth for middle school through adult. What is it? How does it happen? What obstacles might we encounter, and how can we move through them? The course will combine teaching and participation in a practical focus on living with, and making the most of, our imperfectness.
Our secretary, Cathy Armstrong is back in the office on a limited basis at this time. She still has physical therapy and medical appointments to finish before she gets the “okay” to resume driving and working her normal schedule. This week the plan is for her to be in the office on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thanks for your patience.
Margaret Riggs, our organizer, has a sign-up sheet for us on the sanctuary hallway table. See her if you have questions.
Now through December 7 we will receive our annual Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering (RMMO). The RMMO is a tangible way for American Baptists congregations to honor and care for the denomination’s retired ministers and missionaries and their widowed spouses. Through the RMMO, from generation to generation, we remember in love those who have given to us. Our church’s goal this year is $625, up from $620 last year. Let’s give generously! You may use the special envelope in this bulletin.
may be ordered beginning next Sunday, November 24, through December 8, from Connie Westbrook. See her for more information.
