Going Forward - As we shared the summary letter from the Elder meeting last week, they encouraged local church planning around parameters such as schedule, lunch design, and general logistics. To this point, the trustees and Sunday School superintendents will prayerfully consider what this might look like for our local church. The schedule for the next 10 weeks will be to maintain our current times of 9:45am start of singing, 10:45 lunch, and 11:45am start of shorter second service concluding with church ending around 12:30.
Thanks - Bro Rol & Sis Carol Rumbold would like to thank everyone for the many prayers they received during Rol’s illness. Bro Rol is thankful to be back home and has been gaining strength. Bro Rol feels it is now time he relinquish his duties in the Roanoke Cemetery. The trustees would like to thank Bro Rol for his many years of service in keeping up the cemetery. Anyone interested in taking over the cemetery maintenance position should contact Bro. Greg Moser or Bro Rich Bertschi.
