SPECIAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING

Mark your calendars for the Congregational Meeting and vote scheduled for Wednesday evening, May 15, at 6:45 PM.  Because of the extremely busy May weekends, a mid-week evening meeting (with dinner provided by Church Council @ 6 PM) has been scheduled.  The proposed budget being presented by the Church Council eliminates the position of Christian Education Director (Tracy Nerem) and reduces the position of Director of Congregational Care & Growth (Betty Schambach) to half time.  Please be sure to make time to attend this very important meeting.

Here’s What People Are Saying about Stephen Ministry


“I thank God every day for my Stephen Minister.  I don’t know how I could have made it through the past year without her!”

“I had never felt so alone as after my wife died.  I had never opened up to anyone else before.  My Stephen Minister helped me work through the painful feelings and helped me find hope again.”

“Before I had a Stephen Minister, I struggled with whether I even believed in God.  Now I have seen God’s love face-to-face through my Stephen Minister.  It is life-changing!”

“I was able to tell my Stephen Minister things I could never have told a friend.  And she never judged me or looked down on me.  She just listened and cared.  It was just what I needed.”

Mother/Daughter Salad Bar


All Ladies invited to our annual Mother/Daughter Salad Bar on April 11, 2013 at 6:00 p.m.  If you don't have a mother or daughter available, invite a friend, relative or neighbor, just be sure to let us know how many will be coming.  Bring a salad and enjoy a fun evening.  Our guest speaker will be Patty Prauner from Smile, Inc. a wonderful organization that gives handicapped children a feeling of freedom and independence while riding on a horse.  I'm sure we will all be amazed at what a heart-warming facility we have in our area.
