Open Forum and Special Called Business Session
We will be having an Open Forum regarding a single Sunday morning worship service: At our last business meeting, the question of a single Sunday morning worship service was discussed. After a good amount of discussion, it was proposed that the church conduct an open-forum meeting Today, November 6th, at 1:00 p.m. A meal will be provided immediately following the 11:00 a.m. worship service. The goal will be to develop a proposal regarding a single Sunday morning worship service and to hold a special-called business session to vote on that proposal at the end of the open forum discussion.
Rehearsal for the Christmas Cantata has begun and starts at 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday. We also will have praise team rehearsal following at 7:30. Anyone who would like to do special music please contact Carol Burchett at 812-201-0390.
