The Bazaar Committee has been busy planning for the 2012 Bazaar which will be on Saturday, November 17, 2012 downstairs.
At the last planning meeting it was also decided that a BAZAAR COMMITTEE FINANCIAL REQUEST be made available for expenditures and disbursement of Bazaar Funds. If you have a request for Bazaar Funds, please use the form located in the hall outside Stella’s office and give it to Debbie Deardorff. All requests will be reviewed and acted upon by the Bazaar Committee.
We had ourselves a great mid-year congregational business meeting after a wonderful potluck on Sunday, June 10th. Each ministry team celebrated a number of their accomplishments for the year. It was exciting!! WE HAVE A LOT GOING ON. Then the new Welcoming Team shared two new statements for us to consider that have been developed out of our conversations about becoming an “officially” declared open and affirming congregation. The statements were discussed in small groups around the dinner tables and then poignant comments were shared WITH THE LARGER GROUP. The timeline has us voting about this important designation in September in a special meeting after worship. After a few songs and some open microphone time we adjourned with full tummies and fully engaged in the life of our beloved Sunnyslope Church! – Ken Neher
