Rev. Laurie Williams’ Retirement Party

On Sunday, Feb. 24, we honored Rev. Laurie Williams for her almost-15-years of love and service to this congregation. With misty eyes and hearts full of gratitude, we said “THANK YOU!” to one of our favorite redheads.

A special gluten-free cake just for Laurie!
Flowers and food: what could say “We love you” better?
The Assembly Room was filled with well-wishers to honor Rev. Laurie

Valentine’s Fellowship/Sunday, Feb. 17

Many people enjoyed the special “Valentine’s Day Fellowship Time” in the Koinonia Kafe last year,
so the Membership and Evangelism Committee will provide that again this year,
after worship, on February 17.
Special treats and prizes will be part of the fun.
Please join us!
