The following are the announcements for the week of August 14:

Details for Regathering

For up-to-date details on how we are seeking to regather as a church family, see here.

Scent Request

Some in our church family have sensitivities to scents and chemicals. For the health and consideration of others, we’d like to ask everyone to please use unscented hygiene and cosmetic products on Sunday mornings. Thank you for your consideration.

Baby Shower – TODAY

Families are invited for fellowship and to bless Seth Glardon & Aline Dufresne as they anticipate another daughter! The shower will be after the 1st service at 10:30ish at Springhurst Park. Bring your own picnic, chairs, and/or blanket. Cake will be served.

Membership Class - TODAY

There is a membership class being offered downstairs TODAY at 11am during the second service.

Members’ Business Meeting

Our next members’ business meeting is scheduled for August 28 at 1:30pm. The agenda has been sent out through email. Please make it a priority to attend. 

Café RE-OPENED

Our café downstairs has re-opened! Enjoy tea & coffee between services and after the 2nd service. Library coming soon.

Lost & Found

Now that everyone has had a chance to reclaim their lost things, please help yourself to any of the items left over at the back from our Lost & Found! Leftover items will be donated to a thrift store at the end of the summer. *Items in the bin are recently lost—please do not take.

Preschool Activity Bags

Summer special: There are activity bags available for children up to kindergarten age to borrow during service. Please return to the bin after service.  

Service Team Needs

Right now, we are in fairly urgent need of people to help in these ministries:

  •          Nursery – Care for infants and tots through snack, singing, and Bible lessons during the Sunday services
  •          Hospitality:

                             o  Kitchen: help coordinate the demands of our kitchen and show hospitality for various events

                             o    Greeters: help welcome people to worship

                             o    Parking/Security: help show hospitality through parking direction, and security.
