We are extremely pleased to announce more progress with our committees. As you may recall, Morella Larsen announced last week she will be chairing our Stewardship Committee. We are extremely please with Morella in this role, as we know she will lead this committee with great thoughtfulness and energy.
Today we are excited to announce two more committee leaders for this next year. Patti Cameron will chair our Christian Education Committee, organizing and expanding our focus on bible studies for adults and children. Peggy and Rich Dudley will be our leaders for Congregational Life. Peggy and Rich have had extensive experience in this area by leading their congregation activities at their church in Missouri, and we look forward to experiencing the wonderful activities Peggy and Rich will be organizing for us during this next year.
If you have interest in participating on either of these committees, please contact Patti or Peggy & Rich. We are certain they would welcome the ideas and help you could provide.
