    Hi Beloved Parishioners: Sun. Feb. 5, D.L. 9:30, Sunday School after Communion. Sun. Sch. until 11:00 only. We are asking parents, young people over 21, to come to the Annual Church Meeting to see and hear what we have planned for the future of our Church...so you can hear and see what the Church Board is planning and any suggestions from the parishioner for the present and future. After 11:00, we go down to the Social Center for lunch, home-made soup and sandwiches...free...with your children. The children will go up to the Church hall after lunch for about an hour to play games, sing...etc...supervised. At the meeting we will hear reports from the Pastor, Organizations, Treasurer, the Church President and future things. If all goes well...maybe an hour or so....we want all parishioners to come...this is YOUR Church, OUR Church....and a great future is in store......
