WORLD HUNGER SUNDAY is next week! Our offering will go directly to World Renew's work with people like the ones you've met during your devotion time. If you have not picked up the devotional from your mailbox, please do so today! Also, Peter Fish (and crackers) are still available in the narthex. Peter Fish will be collected next week. 


COUNCIL TO MEET: Please pray for the full council as they meet on Tuesday. They will review the data from the congregational survey/profile and begin strategic planning for the coming year.
