Is there an Interest for a NURSERY Room in our church?
The Board of Education is looking into setting up a Nursery Room in our Church. They are first seeing if there is an interest in this room and need your input, please let Taryn Wright or Jenny Reynolds know if this is something that you believe would be of use in our church. The NURSERY ROOM would be in use during Sunday School Time 9:00 am – 10 am and also would be used during worship 10:30 am – 11:30 am. There would need to be volunteer staff scheduled to man the room while in use. We would need to look into getting a TV and Audio set up in the room so those using the room would have access to Worship. This is in the beginning stages and would be a great asset to our church, but before the Board of Education can move forward they need to know there is a great interest. Please let Taryn or Jenny know if this is something you would like our church to have.

For the church history book, updated history for each organization is needed. A good time to complete this task is during the upcoming ALL BOARDS MTG. scheduled for Monday, March 1st, at 6:45 p.m.
Peg or Lisa will have a copy of the 75th Anniversary history during this meeting time. Please contact one of them if you’re not able to attend. The completion time schedule is April 1st.
