Also of Note

Doug Popham  is still recovering from his bone marrow transplant in Seattle. He is doing well but some days are still challenging. If you would like to send a note of greeting or encouragement, his address is: Doug Popham, SLU House, 207 Pontius Ave. N. #612, Seattle, WA 98109.

Help Wanted   We’re looking for people who are willing to take a turn setting things up on the altar for worship and taking them down afterwards.  It’s not hard, takes only a few minutes, and we can show you the ropes.  Please let Pr. Beth know if you can help. Thanks!

We need you for the Audit! – The church council wants to establish a short-term audit committee. We’re looking for three people comfortable working with numbers to audit our financial records for a specific timeframe. This would not be a full-blown audit, but a random sample of income and expense accounts. This would really help the church since it would mean we would not have to hire an outside service to do this work. Please contact Tim Jorve by phone or email for more details.

Email changes: Please contact Steve Simpson  to make changes to the email distribution list for these notes.

Prayers

We pray for peace throughout the world and in our hearts.
