As the Autumn days grow shorter and the nights grow longer, participants in our next family-oriented Shazzam…
On Sunday, October 8, 2023, Joyce Bagiraneza, from International Ministries, spoke to our congregation and delivered her message during the 10:30 a.m. worship service. After the service, our congregation enjoyed a wonderful international-themed luncheon, followed by an excellent and informative presentation from Joyce highlighting many projects sponsored by International Ministries.
The international-themed luncheon was very successful and we enjoyed a variety of delicious dishes representing many countries. As the saying goes, it takes a village to pull things together, and we extend our thanks to everyone who contributed their culinary specialties this year.
A tip of the chef’s toque to our luncheon committee of Joy Brown, Sandra Weissgerber and Carol Claypoole, who helped set-up and decorate the Scott Room and brought the dishes to the kitchen; to our neighbor Steve McLaughlin who set up the tables and chairs for us; and to Beth Hoover, who coordinated the ‘menu’ of dishes contributed for the lunch.
A special ‘Hats Off’ to Barb Twiss, who arranged for us to host Joyce for this year’s Mission Sunday; and to Karen Vadner, who ably stepped in to serve as worship leader when Pastor David was away. Their efforts are most appreciated.
Lynda Mansfield, Mission Chair
