Well the flu just took away last week (so no Missive). Influenza type A is nasty stuff…so bad that you might want to do a virus scan on your computer after reading this. 🙂 Thank you to Barb Sherer for stepping in to preach and everyone else who helped out in my absence.
Much of what I was working on before the flu had to do with our hosting Presbytery. Many of you have signed up to assist in some way. Thank you. I have included teams and times below; details will be given when you arrive. For all volunteers, if able, please park in Presentation’s parking lot. Wear the blue polo shirt if you can, if you don’t have one or want something warmer…that is fine too. Prayers appreciated that all goes well.
