Rev. N. Susan Brims, DS, presiding

A congregational meeting for the purpose of voting on pastoral compensations and to engage in prayerful conversation about the identity of the congregation, who we want to be beyond 2020 as a church community, and to encourage one another in the faith as we face our future together.
 
Please pray the following daily, as we prepare for our Church Conference:

Creator of love and life, as we prepare for our Church Conference we pray to you for wisdom, for a listening heart, for the flourishing of Christ’s holy church in this place, for the increase in our love for others in the name of Christ, and for the light of Christ to shine brightly in this local community to folks who may never enter our doors. This I pray with a humble heart. Amen and amen.

Nursery care is available, staffed with professional care givers. The nursery is located in room 131 & 132. Please RSVP so we have an accurate child count.
