May 18 Announcements

Ministry Team Proposal – A proposal has been put together following our church-wide meeting in late March.    Paper copies are available at church or email a pastor to receive a report.  In the next few weeks, we will be receiving feedback and suggestions, particularly on the “2 Part Proposal” section, and we will begin “trying out” some of the proposals.  If you would like to assist in this work or discussion, please contact a team member or pastor.

Council Positions – Several leadership council positions are opening starting next month.  We would like to consider any individual interested in church leadership; open positions include properties, council secretary and Christian formation.  If you would like to volunteer or suggest an individual for consideration, please talk to Paul Seguin or one of the pastors.

We will need the following:  breakfast juice (apple, orange, cranberry, or whatever you think goes with breakfast), a small container of milk, fruit, snacks and dessert.  Or, if you have another suggestion, let us know.  Please email Kathy if you are coming, so we know how many people to plan for.  All are welcome!  Bring a friend!  If you have any questions, please let Kathy know.
