UPDATE on the FLAGPOLE and SIGN

The Church Council decided at its September meeting to proceed with a project to upgrade our sign and flagpole at the corner of Mark Drive and Barbara Street. The project is still in the design stage, but it will (a) retain the current stone structure which matches the building, (b) illuminate the flagpole, and (c) replace the current bulletin-board-style sign. That last bit is needed because the wiring inside the current sign is dangerous if not done for. The Council has asked a designer to explore possibilities for the new sign.

NEIGHBORS IN NEED (NIN)

Watch for Neighbors in Need (NIN) offering materials to begin showing up at the church in early October. Our officially designated Sunday for receiving NIN is October 22, but gifts can be made at any time. NIN is one of 5 offerings received by the United Church of Christ each year. Two-thirds of the contributions support the UCC’s Justice and Witness Ministries and one-third supports the Council on American Indian Ministries (CAIM). Your generosity will be appreciated.

FALL WORK DAY

Saturday, October 7, has been designated as a Fall work day at the church. Current plans are to make available before that a list of what needs doing, allowing people to chip away, perhaps, on something prior to the 7th if they are available. Otherwise, work will begin on the 7th at 9 A.M.
