Our first annual meeting as an organized congregation is this Sunday, February 23. We'll gather for the Social potluck meal (bring a dish to share) at 11:30am, and then our congregational meeting will start at 12:30pm.
The Leadership Team met on Sunday the 16th to forward the Finance Team's proposed 2020 budget to the congregation and to finalize the agenda for the meeting. You can download these two documents here:
