Each Sunday a different lay person leads the Call to Worship and reads the scripture lessons. If you’ve wondered whether you can be a Lay Reader, contact Linda Martin to let her know of your interest. Whether you’ve been a Lay Reader and wish to continue or want to try it for the first time, she can answer your questions and go over the readings with you until you feel comfortable reading in front of the congregation.
If you enjoy knitting, crocheting, or even fleece-tying baby blankets, consider donating to the Deacons’ ministry that gives each infant born in our congregation a lovingly-made blanket as a welcome to our church family. Email Deacon Chris Bell to learn how to knit or for some of our donated yarn. If you have blankets to donate, leave them in our Volunteer Office. And thank you for helping us wrap those little ones in colorful warmth.
