Please bring any of the items to the church this Sunday and drop them off in the Baby Crib or containers near the crib. The list of items needed is below. If you have any questions, please contact Holly or Ali.

Congregational Conversation Update: The Congregational Conversation that happened last Sunday went well. The elders are meeting this coming week to talk about all the conversations that took place. They will discuss questions and concerns that were brought up and discuss how to proceed with this process. Follow-up information will be shared with the congregation next week. A big thank you to all who attended and to the elders for their hospitality as well as their leadership.

Communications at New Horizons: We want to make sure everyone is getting all the updates and church information we send out. If you feel as if you are getting missed and you are finding yourself “out of the loop,” we want to fix that. Please let Ali or Jim know if you are not receiving the blog updates or the church emails. We send out new information every Friday and we want to do what we can to make sure you are getting that information. Help us, help you!
