9am early church cancelled; 11am Cantata church and Christmas Party on!

Posted by on 14 December 2013

Hi Beloved!

Given the 'wintry mix' (sounds like a snack food and not a mess on the roads) first thing in the morning, we're going to cancel early church (with Sunday school) to give people and plows a little longer to clear things out.

10am choir practice, 11am cantata and 12pm Christmas party is ON. If you can't make it and have a gift book for a kid, don't worry about it! You can make it happen another time.

Bless and enjoy the wonder of God's power!

Molly

Raising the Roof! and Snow Angels

Posted by molly on 10 December 2013

All,
 
The renovation has started in earnest! I've added a new post to the renovation blog, and will be keeping it updated as we continue to make progress, so make sure to check back often.
 
 
 
 
Also, the snow is coming! Every winter we rely on each other to come together and keep the sidewalks clear. No one person has the time to do this - it takes a whole team. Don't think shoveling is your thing? The big storms are not where we usually need the most help. We could use help with any of the following:
 
1) Clearing 1-2" of snow early in the morning before the AM commute
2) Coming mid-day to be a stop-gap between the AM and evening shifts
3) Stopping by after work to finish clean-up or spread salt before the evening freeze
4) Spreading salt on those "mix" days or days when the snow banks melt and create black ice
5) Helping out on those once a year blizzards that require extra help!
 
If you can help with any of these tasks, even if it's only once this winter, that's still a huge help! Please send me an email with what you might be willing to do so I can organize the team.
 
Regards,
