Gardenkeepers!
 
We need help to maintain the church garden areas. We will begin in MArch, weather permitting, cleaning up winter debris.
We need people who like gentle weeding, which can be done with flexible hours, or at your leisure.
As the weather warms, we will also need people to cut the grass.
Contact Caryn Turek.

CHURCH-WIDE MEETING
Sunday, June 24, 9:00-9:45AM

The Council of Elders and Mark Kopchak went on an all-day retreat April 23 led by Pastor Chuck Schleich.  Our purpose was to develop a new Vision Statement, since the former Vision Statement had been in place for 12 years.  It was time for a fresh look at who we are as a church, and where Jesus, our Head, is leading us.
The Council would like to present the results of our retreat to the entire church, and share this new Vision.  Please plan on attending.
Following the Sunday morning service, there will be a time for Questions and Answers, and for you to respond with your ideas.
~ Pastor Jim Wheeler

SIMCHAT OLAM
BASIC Worship Dance Group

Meet at church; contact Laura Salch for dates & times
Would you like to worship the Lord with dance?
Would you like to learn how?
This group is more about meeting the Lord in our personal worship times than about dancing as a group. Some may not even be able to meet on Fridays, and that's all right.
There is however a value in meeting as a group for fellowship, support and ideas. 
All ages and abilities are welcome!
If you need free materials (a binder and a CD), or if you would like to meet privately to get started, please contact Laura Salch.
