Our annual meeting is this Sunday at 10 a.m. The meeting will be virtual, using the Zoom technology that has enabled us to gather for communion and coffee hour during this health emergency. Please see the Zoom invitation that you received in email or in the Words of Hope newsletter to connect. We are asking couples to log in together because Zoom limits the number of connections. If you have questions please contact Pastor Carol at 224-422-9552 or Michelle Tinsley at 480-229-2272.
