The Church’s financial statement for December 2018 is posted for review in the office over the copy machine.

Committee and department heads: Our Annual Meeting is just a few weeks away. All reports must be submitted to Audrey for compilation by the end of the month—or you get to read yours aloud at the meeting!

The fabulous prizes are in! Thanks to all who participated in the recent Creedal Christmas Quiz. If you answered a question correctly—or wanted to—or should have—help yourself to one of the beautifully republished pocket-size booklets in the back. John Calvin’s “Truth for All “Time” is a brief outline of the Christian faith, including easy-to-read explanations of the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer and the Apostles’ Creed. But please, only take one if you will commit to read it! Again, thanks for playing!
