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.
Justice Ministry Announcement: Jobs Committee
Our Justice Ministry continues to work through BOLD Justice on Jobs in Broward County. We continue to be concerned about the 67,000 unemployed in Broward County. We will be looking for the county commission to address this through a priority hiring ordnance. On Tuesday, November 5th @ 10:00am the County Commission will be deciding if they will hold a public hearing on this issue. If they decide yes, the public hearing will be on Tuesday, December 10th @ 2:00pm [Note: this is a change from the original date. Please make note of the new dates]. All meetings are to be held at the County Commission Chambers (115 South Andrews Avenue in Fort Lauderdale). There is ample parking at the location. We will need everyone from the Church who is free during the day to attend these meetings, especially the November meeting. We will all come dressed in a red blouse or tee shirt and sit together to show our support. It is essential that we have a large group representation from all of our churches to support this effort. If you are free to go, please let either Donna Simms or Roland Abel know.
