Sunday Evening Eucharist
June 2 - July 28

The Sunday Evening Eucharist started on June 2nd and will continue through July 28th.  A light meal will follow the service each Sunday. Those who are planning on attending the supper, please bring a drink and a medium bag of chips or some type of salad to share.  The meat will be provided.  The cost of the meal will be $3.00.

Search Committee 

Sunday, June 9, 2013 is the first of two open meetings for members of the Parish who have not had an opportunity to participate in a small group meeting with the Search Committee.  The meeting will immediately follow the 10:00 AM service (about 11:20 and last about 45 minutes).  Grab a cup of coffee and join the group in the front of the Parish Hall. The next and final opportunity will be on June 23 immediately after the 10:00 service.  Remember that these meetings will be focus group meetings; if you have already participated in a focus group with members of the Search Committee, you don't need to attend. If you want to participate and neither of these times is convenient, PLEASE let a member of the search committee know. We want to hear from each of you. Thank you for your prayers!!


If you have questions, please contact Phyllis Holland, 242-0577.


With our sincere gratitude,

The Search Committee members: Michael Black; Allan Dear; Phyllis Holland, Chair; Jeani Synyard; Mike Tanner; Helen Tucker; Nikki Yarbrough.
