From the President, Nancy Walters

How nice it is to hear all of the voices in the congregation singing the hymns and the service!  It is also nice to see all of the people together in one service – and getting to know each other.  If you see someone that you don’t know, please have someone introduce you or introduce yourself – they probably don’t know you either!  Stay after the service for coffee and fellowship.  The cooler days are right around the corner.  The church will be warm and welcoming.  The snow should be plowed before you arrive (only needed plowed once last season) and the walkways will be shoveled and salted, so please be careful as you enter.  There are a few openings on Church Council for the next two-year term.  If you are interested in serving, please see Bob McKinney, Chairperson of the Nominating Committee, or any of the Council members.  They will be able to tell you what position is open and what the job involves.  Please be sure to check out the bulletin board in the Education Wing!  Darlene Altiere spends many hours in preparing the board and does a wonderful job.


Church Information…Please remember that you can obtain church information from the monthly Lamplighter Newsletter, the Constant Contact emails you receive, on the church website (, on Facebook (, and postings on the church bulletin board.  Church Council Meeting minutes are posted on the bulletin board and sent out via Constant Contact.  We would like to see a better “open rate” when we send information to you via Constant Contact so that we know you are being informed of the activities that are occurring at the church.  If you have any other suggestions on how best to reach out to our parishioners, please see a Council member.
