TODAY

 

THE FLOWERS ON THE COMMUNION TABLE TODAY are given by Leigh Aaron-Leary in celebration of her birthday.

 

CONGREGATIONAL CAFE You are invited to attend a Congregational Cafe today immediately after the worship service.  The Council has received a well-considered proposal for a permanent outdoor memorial to commemorate UCC

founders and other loved ones who have passed.  At the Cafe, these plans, including a design, will be previewed and feedback invited.  A final decision on whether to move forward with the memorial will ultimately be put before the congregation for a vote.
