Valentine Cookie Boxes - Emmanuel is sending cookies to our college kids and military personnel for Valentine's Day. To make this happen, we are in need of cookie donations. If you are able to donate cookies, please bring them to the Fellowship Hall kitchen by Monday, February 7. We ask that you package/wrap the cookies in increments of two. Also, we are in need of addresses. Please contact Doug Falk at firstname.lastname@example.org with addresses of your college students or relatives in the military, or any questions.
In recognition of World Marriage Day, we will have a special prayer during worship on February 12 and 13 to celebrate the anniversaries of those couples who have been married 25 years or longer. If you will be married 25 years or longer as of 2022, and have not already submitted your anniversary information, please email or call the church office with your names and the date you got married no later than Monday, February 7.
Fellowship Hall Air Conditioning - One of the Property Division’s goals for 2021 was to investigate the practicality and cost for air conditioning in the Fellowship Hall. That process has been completed. The installation of air conditioning would make the hall more comfortable for summer usage for funeral dinners and fellowship events. The project would consist of four mini split heat pumps, three to be installed in the Fellowship Hall and one in the kitchen. These are the same as the one previously installed in the choir loft. The estimated cost would be $18,000. If you would like to contribute to make this project possible, please place a check in with your regular offering and put air conditioning on the memo line. Thank you.
The February sign-up sheets for worship volunteers for weekend services are in the narthex. Please sign up if you can help out.
Contact Information - Please update the church office if any of your information has changed: phone number, address or email address.
