The Worship Planning Group will hold a reorganization meeting on Sunday, April 8th at 12:15 pm in the Fellowship Hall!
I am "retiring" as Coordinator of the Worship Planning Group as of Pentecost, but will remain an active member of the group. We are looking for creative ways to restructure the responsibilities required to keep our meetings and communication organized going forward. We welcome your ideas!! If you are unable to stop in at the meeting, please feel free to contact me.
