The Music Director search committee began meeting in September. A job description was written and posted on several websites. CVs/Resumes are being submitted. A subcommittee is reviewing these and will prioritize them for the full team’s consideration. An interview process will follow. We will keep you updated as progress warrants. Prayers appreciated through this important process. Questions? Contact Ed McFalls or Karen Goldsborough.
The average reusable tote bag has a lifespan equal to that of more than 700 plastic bags. One person using reusable shopping bags over their lifetime could remove more than 20,000 plastic bags from damaging our environment. So imagine what a whole congregation might accomplish in caring for God’s creation by replacing plastic bags with a new, blue, Westminster reusable bag. Be sure to pick up your free bag in the narthex this Sunday!
