Updates for April 20, 2012

Living Waters Prayer Group will meet Monday, April 23 at 7:30 a.m. in the side chapel.

Bible Study continues with the Book of Acts, learning about how the Jesus movement came together after the resurrection of Jesus, and through their commitment and compassion became the church that we inherit and live into today. Come join us.
Don’t worry if you don’t know much about the Bible or that you have lots of questions about what you believe and understand.
That’s the point of us gathering – to learn and grow together. So come with your questions and come with your hunger to grow in faith just like
our ancestors of so long ago. Bible study meets each Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m.

Stacy will be on vacation until Tuesday morning April 24th. Kent Wittler is the deacon of the month and can be contacted for urgent pastoral care matters.

Note from HR Committee: The HR Committee will begin the annual review process regarding our church staff and pastor. We will be looking for feedback from Church Council, Church Committees, and congregants regarding various aspects of our church life and in particular, the ways in which our staff support and contribute thereto. It is the Committee’s plan to complete the review process in advance of our annual meeting in the beginning of June. Should you have any questions or comments, please be in touch with Lara Gund, Karen Weisgerber, or Tom Vawter.
