Scripture Reader Sign-up is on the bulletin board . . . current readers must sign for 2018—or not sign-up if you’d like a year off.  New readers are invited.  If you are new to the reading list, ask for an orientation sheet.

Everyone in the congregation is invited to nominate deacon candidates for the members meeting on January 20.  The three nominees most noted will be asked to stand for election.  Dan & Chris Payne are concluding a four year term and are eligible for renewal.  Montie & Amy Wuthrich continue with two years remaining in their four-year term.  Nominations may be left in the basket in the foyer or with Montie Wuthrich or Bryan Amstutz.

Dozens & Dozens & Dozens of free books may be found on the table at the east end of the sanctuary today and December 24.  These are samples, extra copies, down-sizing of the pastor’s library and low-circulation books from the church library.  Please help thyself!

Building Use Calendar for 2018 may be found on the Bulletin Board panel beside the church mailboxes.  The calendar may be used to reserve space for family and small group gatherings.  On rare occasion, priority needs to be given to unscheduled events such as funerals or emergency meetings.
