Moment for Tuesday September 27 2022

The Tuesday moment video can be found here: (Presentation to Bert Johnson). 

A message from our Ministry and Personnel Commitee: Sunday, September 25 was Bert Johnson’s last service with us as Choir Director. On behalf of our congregation, Joy Bamford expressed our appreciation of Bert’s work and presented him with a gift of a beautifully crafted stained glass hanging. Joy acknowledged Bert’s long-time dedication as Choir Director, organist, and then as Music Director for more than two years of virtual worship in which he contributed greatly to the recorded wondrous music and song. We wish Bert well in all as he sets out to do with study, work, and family. 

On Friday September 30, please remember to wear your orange shirt.
