FELLOWSHIP TIME SIGN-UPS: Talk to most of our newer members and you will hear how important fellowship time was for them getting to know who we are as a congregation. We hope 2-3 people will serve refreshments during fellowship time each Sunday and that households will serve three times each year. The sign-up sheet is now in the narthex (gathering space next to the sanctuary). Food can be homemade or store-bought, simple or elaborate. Everybody’s got something to offer.
