Church Council meets January 16
Everyone is welcome to attend meetings of the Church Administrative Council, the main decision-making body of the church. At these meetings, which generally take place every other month on the third Monday of the month, reports are presented from all of the committees, commissions and other groups that lead programs and ministries for the congregation. All committee leaders are expected to attend, and to submit a report of activities to the church office ahead of time. The next meeting begins at 7 p.m. on January 16. Although only Council members may vote on actions, everyone has a voice in the discussions.

Confirmation program offered this winter
A Confirmation program for youth ages 12 to 18 will be offered this winter and early spring. Young adults will explore what they have been taught at home and church about being a Christian. Through reading, discussion and hands on experiences, the teens will be given the opportunity to define what and why they believe. There will be an orientation meeting for parents and prospective students on Sunday, January 15, at 2 p.m. to review the curriculum and address questions.
