Christian Community Food Depot: We need a volunteer who could tabulate and deliver the food we collect weekly at the back of the church for the CCFD.  This involves some tabulation and monthly hauling in your vehicle.  If you are interested, please tell Rev. Amy.

Cleaning Crew: We have a wedding/reception scheduled in our church on February 23.  Would you be willing to contribute an hour or two of your time on either Thursday afternoon, Feb 21 or on Sunday afternoon, Feb 17 to help clean up the church?  Please let Diane Johnson know if you are interested.

Please bring a brown bag lunch, beverages and dessert will be provided.  Free, but free will offerings will gladly be accepted if you are able to do so.

Diocesan Statement on Gun Storage: This past spring, the Bishop and the Diocesan Council approved this statement on safe gun storage: “The Council of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri implores gun owners to lock and secure weapons against use by children or those suffering from agonizing despair. Please ensure that all guns in your home are locked and secured against use by children or those suffering agonizing despair.”
