First Pres Community –




This Sunday, November 19 –








How is that for BIG news?


During Worship, 9ers and 11ers, will be together as ONE church as we reaffirm our Baptismal vows, as we receive new members, and as we commission 3 Task Forces who have been working on what is next for our church.


In preparation for the Annual Meeting, copies of the Annual Report are in the Narthex along with the 2018 Budget adopted by Session.  The slate of new Elders (Class of 2019) is: Tom Beaver, Alex Calder, Lance Dwyer, Becky Gordy, and Randy Stone; reupping: Neal Bellamy, Sandy Eberhard, Robin Johnson, Alex Olson.  The slate for the 2018 Nominating Committee At-Large representatives is: John Ball, Marg Bandre, Don Buss, and Judy Rogers.


Everyone is encouraged to be come.


Also Sunday evening at 6pm is the Community Thanksgiving Worship Service by the Ministerial Alliance.  It will be held at the LDS Church (850 SE Church Street).  All are welcome.


Tonight, Logos. 5:30pm to 7:30pm for all 1st-12th Graders.  Dinner at 5:30, then classes/groups and activities rotate through every half hour. Also Bells at 6:30, Choir at 7:30, and Nursery care all evening.


Next week, there will be no missive as it will be a shortened week due to Thanksgiving.  I will bring a Thanksgiving message on Sunday, November 26 at both services.


Lastly, thank you to everyone who worked on last weekend.  The Holiday Festival, Church Anniversary, and CROON concert were all outstanding!!!   A special thank you to Judy Holcomb and her team, Tom Eagle and his crew, Tom & Roxee Beaver, Sharon Pyburn, and many, many others!!!  Thank you all.


And have a blessed Thanksgiving week!




Your pastor and friend  Michael
