eNews for Thursday, February 21

Saturday was a blast at the RE Valentine's Day Celebration! Crafts, valentines, and cookies were a huge hit all around. We hope you got to enjoy the "efforts" of our youth on Sunday too, with our homemade cookies, creative positivity valentines, and tissue paper sun-catchers!

Worship Matters

We will gather this Sunday, February 24 to worship together with Tom Moffit presenting a sermon titled “The Rocky Shores of Memory.” We hope you will join us.

In speaking of the world's problems, each person's contribution does make a difference, even if in a small way.     ~ Tom Moffit

If you happen to miss being in worship on any given Sunday, the texts to previous sermon messages (and some of the readings as well) can be found in our website sermon archive.

New Directories Ready

Our 2019 Directories have arrived - now with great photos! Due to cost, they are printed in black and white, but are in full color online. To see the online version, click here on Directories and enter the password. (It is the same as last year except it ends with 19 instead of 18. Contact Gisela if you need password.)

Thank you to Gisela Moffit (project leader), Terrie Robbie, Aaron Jones and James Hatcher (photographers) and our Administrative Assistant, Kirsten Keeton (layout, cropping photos, getting it print-ready). Their collaboration produced an attractive document, which we hope will help us to build relationships with one another more quickly and easily.
