Items Discussed

Meeting convened at 6:30 pm

Possibility of conducting monthly/bimonthly pot luck lunches after worship was discussed. Only negative is maybe leaving out 8:00 worshipers, as they would have to return to church. This item was left open.

God’s Work Our Hands Sunday will be on September 8 with one service at 9:30 am. Then we will have lunch and go out in the community with service projects. Pam Schuetz is coordinator for this event.
