Hello Deacons and Elders,

We are so thankful for your service to the church. We are working on making our church an even more welcoming place, so we will be adding greeting duties to the deacon and elder roles. We look forward to hearing your ideas! Mark Benge and I will have a meeting on September 11th at 6:00p.m. to discuss these duties and create a schedule. After this initial discussion, we will be breaking off into separate rooms for each role.
Additionally, we have several deacons and elders that will fulfill their terms this year. So if you are interested in being a deacon or elder, please come! We would love to have you!
We look forward to serving together,
Mark Benge and Christi Miller

Make plans now to attend our next churchwide fellowship in the JCAC. After our meal we’ll build a campfire at the fire pit! Bring your lawn chairs and maybe a little blanket if the night air is cooler! If you’re able to provide homemade ice cream,
please let Beverly Rubino know as soon as possible.
Thank you!
