Welcome, Pastor Valera, to our church and community!  We are excited to see what will happen as you work with our new team of lay ministers: Alice Lindekugel, Melody Newman, Amy Prior, and Rachell Richman, and lay leader, Rod Beemer. 

One of the first orders of business is to get as many members as possible into bible studies being led by the ministerial team.  The study is titled, "Does Your Church Have a Prayer," and is a great way to build connections and understanding among our members.  Books are available at the church for $10.  Here is the schedule:Melody-10:45am Sundays at church; Alice-5pm Sundays at her home; Amy-9:30am Mondays at church; Rod-6;30am Wednesdays at church; Rachell-12 noon Wednesdays at church.

 Next, you should know that worship services will be held in the fellowship hall for three weeks, starting August 26th with a breakfast at 8am.  Egg casseroles, muffins, juice and coffee will be served.  No breakfast is planned for September 2nd, and 9th. During this time we will begin some transformation of the sanctuary as we move into a new era.  Pray for all of us!
