On June 6th, the 313th Stated Meeting of Albany Presbytery will be held at our church! The meeting starts at 9:30 am, and registration begins at 8:30. We will need helpers for greeting people and helping them find their way around, as well as set up and clean upfor the lunch in fellowship hall. If you are interested in helping, please let Becca know. For those of you who are interested in what happens at Presbytery meetings, this is also a perfect opportunity to check it out. The part of the meeting where we worship together is always wonderful and a nice way to remember that we are part of a connectional church. Worship will be from 11-12. Please consider attending for all or part of the meeting! All desserts (finger food type) is to be brought to the fellowship hall prior to June 6th. Call Carolyn Learch if you need assistance.

The Steadfast Class supplies all paper products for church events, makes sure there are flowers in church each Sunday, and makes sure that there is a coffee hour following worship. In addition to we provide receptions following funerals when asked to. Because of the expense of there receptions we ask for a donation of $50.00 for desserts and drinks and $100.00 for complete meals. Our only income come from our dues, coffee hour donations, and our Mother’s and Father’s day bulletins. Please help us financially in the above ways so we can continue to serve the church.
