The staff positions of Youth Director and Nursery Coordinator are open.  Applications/resumes can be submitted to either Candy Griffin or Pastor Cindy.  We want to fill these positions very soon. These are both part-time positions.

The Youth Director is a 20-hour position with need for ability to preach, be organized and lead youth in various activities, work with families of youth, work with other youth directors in other churches in a cooperative youth ministry. Person must be mature and have a growing relationship with Christ. Pastor Cindy has the job description for review.

Must be able to lift children, have a love for children and understand the safety for children and safety of space and items in the room.  Pastor Cindy has the job description for review.

Faith in Action Day – Sunday, April 18: Lists for project items are available in the church foyer or church office. We need you to either purchase items from those lists, or provide $$.  You are buying in bulk when you buy. Items bought will be broken down into individual units. It will be helpful if you sign up for the items that you will buy or have purchased when they are brought to the church. All items should be brought to the church by Sunday, April 11.  This will give us time to see what will need to be bought prior to our work day.

Travel to the Holy Land with Pastor Cindy I have placed two display boards around the church: one in the office area and one in the narthex with brochures. I have two half trip scholarships available.  If you would like to go, but $$$ is an issue, one of those scholarships would pay for half of your trip – Value of $2000 per scholarship.  Talk with me if you might have need of one of the scholarships or want more information about the trip.

Grace and Peace – Pastor Cindy

ATTENTION: If you are 16 and over, you may begin now registering to receive the Coronavirus Vaccine. While the mask mandate will be lifted on April 6, we will continue to wear masks until we see that most everyone has been vaccinated or it is deemed safe to remove them. Thanks for your help in this.

A new address for setting up your COVID Vaccine: You can get registered and find the correct location to get your vaccine.  Getting your vaccine will help everything get back to “normal” eventually.
