Hooray for Ushers!! We are getting our usher teams organized for this year. Ushering is a great way to welcome folks as they come on Sunday morning and help make the Sunday morning go smoothly. This is something all ages can do, and is a wonderful thing for a family to do together. We have enough teams that you would only need to serve about once every 2 months. If you are interested, sign up sheets are in the gathering space, or talk to Debbie Sanders.

 

Creative Retreat at church February 6-8! Come join in with fellowship, inspiration, and talent for a 3 day winter retreat in our church basement from 9am to 4pm. Bring any project you are working on whether its painting, sewing, knitting or just watching.  You can leave your supplies and return the next day.  Come and go as you need, invite a friend.  Snacks, bag lunches or call in a food request to keep up your energy.  It’s a time to connect with old or new friends.  Sue Boutin
