A MEMBER GIVES THANKS: I have had several members to bring dinner and send cards to me, while I have been in treatment and now am recovering from cancer. Thank you to the congregation for all the support and prayers given. This has been a very hard year for our family, with unexpected losses of family members and now with my cancer. Continued prayers are appreciated, as we should learn if treatments were successful with scan in January. I want everyone to know how much prayers have meant and how much from all the prayers I have felt peace in Christ. Thank you, Barbara Conroy

OUR NEXT FELLOWSHIP LUNCH will be held on December 3, following worship. This will also be a time of reflection and priority setting following the small group conversations that we have been having , so your participation is invaluable in this final step of our Mission Study.  We’ll be serving pizza and invite your contributions  of salad fixings (different greens, chopped vegetables, toppings, and dressings) and desserts.
