EVERYONE LIKES GETTING CHRISTMAS CARDS, so please take a few minutes to send some cards to our ailing and homebound members.  There is a list on the Member Care board outside the Harvin Hall door.  You may pick out your own cards, or pick some up from the box at the Ask Me Desk.  You are sure to brighten someone’s day!

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT to check out the Member Care board in the office area near the Harvin Hall door. We have put up a list of our homebound members, and a member birthday list, which we will change monthly; this is a way to not only connect with our homebound members, but also to know ahead of time any member who has a birthday during the month!

Did you know that federal law greatly restricts the disclosure of patient information by hospitals? As a result, the pastor and church office may not know that a member of the church has been admitted to the hospital. If you are hospitalized and would like to notify the pastor, it is important that you (or a family member or friend) inform the church office as soon as possible, because we rely on you to let us know so that we can offer pastoral care and support! We would rather five people let us know rather than no one at all! Thank you for your help as we all join together to minister to the needs of our congregation!

Nursery Care is available during worship for the children ages 3 and under in the Church’s Parlor. Please take advantage of our staffed child care during the worship service.
