Church bulletin announcements for the week of 05/17/15
Letters From the Nominating Team
The church office has mailed out letters from the Nominating Team to each person holding a ministry position in the church. The question is: Does God want you to continue working in the ministry responsibility next church year that you are in right now? The request is that you might get your response back to the church ASAP. The Nominating Team needs them by May 31, so they can compile a list of workers for approval at a church business meeting. We appreciate your diligence in getting these letters turned in AND your availability and service to your God and to His people. Please let the office know ASAP if you did not receive your letter.
