April 17th Congregational Development Workshop Canceled, to be Rescheduled

Rev. Chip and I have decided to cancel Saturday's workshop on Congregational Development. Although there is much work to be done to cultivate new leaders, this workshop conflicts with the 2 p.m. Celebration of Life service for Lyn Plath. Our thoughts turn to the dedication and contributions of Lyn as well as Phyllis Collins and Jim Moore.
We will announce the date and time for the workshop once it has been rescheduled.
