News and Events for May 28

There is a Called Church Council meeting today, Sunday, May 28, following the 10:55 am worship service.  The purpose of the called meeting is to consider a revision to our church Safe Sanctuaries policy that would create an exception to the requirement that all regular children’s and youth ministry volunteers must go through an application process, including a background check.  The Church Council will meet in the Fellowship Hall.  We expect the meeting to begin about 12:10 pm.

 Edward Cox House—Our History & Archives Committee need pictures of the Cox House, structure inside and outside, as well as the grounds. Particularly  interested in pictures, drawings, portraits, etc. that go back in time as far as possible, i.e., Christmas at the Cox House.  If you have anything or know someone who might have something that might be copied, please see Betsy Carrier.
