October is Pastor Appreciation Month!

The Staff Parish Relations Committee encourages each of you to express your gratitude and appreciation in your own way. A simple thank you, personal note or card means a lot as would a meal, invitation to lunch or dinner, gift certificate, or even sharing a dessert with the Pastor and
some of your church friends.

Help yourself to a daily devotional guide 

The November-December issue of the Upper Room is available in large print or pocket-size. Pick one up in the narthex or at the Information Center in the corridor. These are free, but donations to cover their cost are welcome.
