Annual Meeting – You are invited to come and join together at this year’s annual meeting on February 25th.  Churches are at their best when they have input from as many people as possible!  God’s will is best discerned in groups by different people with different ideas.

On the 25th, following worship we will have lunch in the Church Hall and receive and consider the financial reports.  We will also look at the proposed budget for 2018.  We will reflect on what has taken place during the past year.  We will celebrate God’s goodness and generosity.

Copies of the Annual Report are available at the back of the sanctuary. Please bring your copy to the meeting.  Additional copies will be available at the meeting and in the church office.

The Mission Development and Social Action Committee would welcome any to join and contribute ideas and help in fulfilling the mission of the church in our community and beyond. We meet once a month, usually on a Wednesday evening. Contact Dallas Davis (you may leave a message with the Church Office).
