OUR DAYCARE IS HIRING: We are in need of new staff as we make a new and exciting beginning. Pastor Kathy is currently serving as our Director, but we will need a number of additional staff. We also need people available to fill in as substitutes of for the next few weeks until we are fully staffed. Even two or three hours a few times a week would help tremendously.

Volunteers who would like to help are also welcome: it would help our staff greatly if we had volunteers willing to come in for an hour or more just to rock babies or read stories to children. Talk to Pastor Kathy or sign up on the sheet on the table in the narthex.

WHILE WE ARE NOT YET ASSIGNING FELLOWSHIP COFFEE DUTIES anyone who would like to bring homemade baked goods or snacks is welcome and invited to do so.

SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY has resumed. Everyone is invited to join us at 8:00 am as we study Paul’s second letter to the Corinthian church.

BREAD MINISTRY CONTINUES WITH NEW TIME from 11:30 AM – 3:00 PM every Wednesday. Times are based on when HyVee has items ready for pick-up.

REMEMBER YOUR OFFERINGS: The balance in our General Fund has dipped very low. Please remember to give as you are able.
