Pastoral Letter

Part II Worship

The All Church Conference approved the new worship schedule (contained in the Frequently Asked Questions in the pews) to begin September 22, 2013.

New Schedule
8:30 am to 12:30 pm Nursery Care

8:30 am Worship in Sanctuary (8 week test) (45 min.)

(with organ and piano accompaniment)

9:20 am Worship in Fellowship Hall (with Praise Band)

Fellowship Time

COME is working on the set up for fellowship

between services and following the 11 am service. They are looking at multiple spaces for people to connect and for our ministry groups (homeless task force, scrip... ) to invite participants. A separate team is being created to provide hospitality on the Fellowship Hall level (inside and out) for the 9:20 am service.

Learning

  • -  Children and youth Sunday School (and Children’s choir)

    have been aligned with the new schedule.

  • -  The Outreach Mission Area will be hosting conversations on immigration at 9:20 and 11 in connection with the Sunday afternoon series of panels and speakers.

  • -  The Adult Bible Study will be meeting from 9:30 to 10:30 in the Chapel.

    As always, we will be learning on the way and opportunities to improve and enhance our Sunday morning experience. May God’s grace and wisdom accompany us.
