Summer Music. The Northern Lights Ringers have put away their handbells for the summer (and in preparation for them to be sent away for a “tune-up" this summer). The Chancel Choir is on break until September. However, since music is a very important part of our Sunday worship together, we encourage people to share their musical talents during the summer. Kate has put a “Musical Offering” page in the white Volunteer notebook for you to sign up. As always, before you write your name in, please chat with Lori Parker Wasko and Caroline Valentine about your plans.
Let’s Get Creative about Fundraising! The FCC Church Council formed the Ad Hoc Committee for Budget and Planning. They’re focused on the whole financial picture but with an emphasis on our expenses. At their meeting on Tuesday, May 10, the Stewardship Ministry created a new Ad Hoc Fundraising Committee to focus on how we can increase the Income side of our unbalanced budget. We know you’ve got all kinds of ideas about how to bring more $$$ in (and at the same time attract more members), so let Kate know if you’re willing to spend some time sharing ideas and developing a proposal for the Stewardship Ministry to present to the congregation. This is the kind of committee where the more ideas (and sometimes the craziest) we can generate, the more likely we’ll come up with some great solutions. Keep in mind that this is not intended to be a long-term commitment – just a few conversations with your friends.
We Support F.I.S.H.: Please put non-perishable fruit, soup, or canned or packets of powdered milk in your cart next time you are shopping and bring them to the plastic bins in the narthex marked for F.I.S.H. Another way you can help is by saving your egg cartons; they get eggs donated in bulk and need the cartons for distributing to needy families.
