These meetings will run through early December with our final meeting being the Annual Business Meeting. For those who attend worship and remain in the parking lot we will have a deacon posted outside with a microphone if anyone would like to make a comment during our meetings. For the election process a paper ballot will be placed in each bulletin so that those in the parking lot can vote without being present in the sanctuary. A deacon will collect these and bring them in to be counted.

RADA catalogs – There are new catalogs in the vestibule

Mission needs - If you know of a need for local missions or a missions opportunity contact Craig Pugh, mission committee chairman.
