A great, big thank you to all activity leaders and all who participated in the Congregational Weekend, April 24 – 26. Thanks to Scott Dahlin for organizing the hotdog cookout on Friday that served over 120 people and to Katherine Acenas for helping us play silly games afterwards.
The rain on Saturday did not deter us from doing some work – and play. Thank you to the leaders in the day’s activities: Patti Hubbard led a crew to make chili and cornbread; Sue and Rich Freeman had their gang working on the grounds; Kathy Johnson and Kathy Orms pulled weeds in the rain garden with their group for Eco Solutions; Tom Ricono had everyone cleaning the foyer and Fellowship Hall; and a group of folks decorated and wrote cards for the Care Team with Chris Kelsey and Loretta Arnn. There were also fun activities for the kids: Pam Lepley helped little ones create flower pots and make care bags for our home-based members and Don Kautz showed his gang how to make bird houses, go on a scavenger hunt, and paint rocks!
We celebrated New Member Sunday by welcoming our newest members during the service and eating chili lunch together afterwards. The meat chili was deliciously donated by “Chef” Drake Dennis. Thank you to Caron Armstrong for shepherding this process and providing such a warm welcome to our Fellowship.
