We had a yummy Stewardship Luncheon hosted by the Trustees and catered by Chef Joe.  If you haven’t put your pledge card in, please do so soon, so the Trustees can budget for next year.

Our next Council Meeting is January 6th after church.  We will be discussing some important issues which you should be thinking about in advance:  hiring an administrative assistant, considering shared ministry or continuing lay-led ministry will be two important topics.
