Many thanks to all who came to help the 120 baskets get packed and delivered last Sunday, and those who helped with the Branches Thanksgiving meal.

 

Dear congregation, more and more people are making their donations to the church through the Vanco electronic giving system. This allows for regular giving to take place according to your preferences. You can set up your giving profile or have the church office help you to do so. Please consider this method of giving.

 

Welcome to all visitors. You are invited to stand during the service and introduce yourself, or to have someone else introduce you. We want to give you one of our welcome packs and therefore encourage you to fill out the card and tear off the badge, write your name on it and wear it so that we can greet you during and after the service. Note that there is a wheelchair entrance from the back-parking lot through the double doors. The church has a wheelchair in the back of the sanctuary for anyone wishing to assist a person coming to a meeting. Rest rooms for the disabled are available in the Preschool wing.

 

If you need anything during the service please contact one of the ushers, who will be wearing a multicolored stole/scarf. Please do not bring food or drinks into the sanctuary unless absolutely necessary. Thank you.
