Parking Lot Worship & Q Mtg, Dec 13

No Facebook Live this Sunday, as we will be outside. Radio broadcast only.  [Missed?  We have the audio linked right here]

This will be great practice for Christmas eve, so do plan to join us in the parking lot!

Following regular worship: a brief quarterly meeting to consider the 2021 mission budget.  [Motion Passed-copy of minutes available in office] The Stewardship Team will have lawn signs to share as you depart. We have hope!
