  • I will be at Synod Headquarters on Monday and Tuesday. You may still text or email if you need anything.
  • Wednesday after Chapel and Friday at 8:45 we will practice for our song.
  • Spelling Bee at WISCO next Saturday if you are free it would be great to go and support our spellers.
  • Next Sunday, Sept. 30th is Ministry Sunday. You may need to stop by the Trinity Room about 8 to pick up a flower. You may sit where you would like we will not process in.
  • Thank you for all of your hard work every week. We could not do everything that we do without it.
