Volunteer Opportunity. The church office is looking for 2-3 volunteers who can be called to maintain office hours when staff are on vacation or sick. The responsibilities are negotiable, but would include opening the building and answering phones.

It seems as though we are constantly inundated with negative news stories regarding health issues, economic issues, philosophical differences as well as political aggression. But we have also experienced many positive events this past year that have brought us joy and encouragement. Please consider sharing your good news stories in the next edition of Grace Notes. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you
Thank you to the Lendrum Piecemakers for passing this information along!
