Ongoing Announcements

Ministry Opportunity: Consider in your heart if you would be able and willing to warmly greet people as they enter our sanctuary on Sunday mornings for worship and to offer the ministry of hospitality as an usher. Contact Marlene Hass or Rev. Sara.

Weekly Book Study: Last year, the weekly book study proved to be very enriching personally as well as providing a sense of community and a bond between those in the group. We grew with and through each other as we used Brene’s literature as our guide for deep discussion. This year we are reading Brene’s book Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead beginning September 27th from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Online Giving to WRC: We are pleased to announce that to facilitate ease of giving options, you may now make donations to WRC by going to: goo.gl/VBcmMn or with your smartphone by scanning our QR Code with your phone’s camera.

Ongoing Fund Raiser - Adams Gift Cards: Don't forget to buy Adams gift cards before you shop for food or gardening supplies! Currently we sell about $1,000 per month and make 10% of that for the church. If everyone would just ask a friend or neighbor, think of how effective and easy this would be. Please see Annie LaValle!
