From Pastor Gray:
I am pleased to announce that our Trustees have officially established the Michael Crotts Memorial Technology Fund. $20,000 has been set aside for that purpose and we are challenging members of our congregation and friends of Michael Crotts to match that amount. Thanks to a very generous gift from Terri and Allen Queen and a loving donation from an anonymous friend who attended Michael’s funeral, we are more than halfway toward that goal, having received $11,300. Michael was always very concerned with the quality and durability of our sound system, and we believe that being able to provide the upgrades that he recommended is an appropriate way to honor his memory. Thank you for taking on this challenge! Donations can be sent to the church office and designated for the “Michael Crotts Memorial Technology Fund.”
Our annual Congregational Council Meeting will be held in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, October 24 at 5:00 p.m. The meeting will be in-person only (it will not be Live streamed). Masks will be required and there will be plenty of room for appropriate distancing for those who so desire. Reports from our many ministries will be received and elections for Board members and Synod delegates will take place at that time.
