Announcements and Messages for the Community

First Annual Interim Minister’s Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast.  I would like to thank all the volunteers who made our ministries possible this past program year (September through May).  Maybe you offered your time and talents to clean up and decorate the sanctuary, parsonage and/or grounds; maybe you shoveled the snow around the building, and maybe even behind the scenes.  Please stop by, shortly after the worship service, at the table right outside the church. – Pastor Shuji

Summer Adult Reading Circle.  Pastor Shuji will be leading an online discussion of “With Open Hands” by Henri J. M. Nouwen.  Other titles to be announced throughout the summer.  Contact Pastor Shuji with questions.
