GREETERS FOR WORSHIP
Greeters are needed for both worship services each Sunday morning at CEPC. The only requirement for this job is a friendly smile and a few kind words. Please consider volunteering to be a greeter. There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the office hallway. If you forget to sign up, give Barbara Curry a call at 299-3218. First-time greeters may want to call Barbara for more information. Don’t be shy - it’s fun!
If you enjoy knitting or would like to learn to knit, Knifty Knitters is the place for you! This group of ladies led by Alison Hill enjoys all sorts of handwork and lots of fellowship. They meet on Tuesdays beginning at 10:00 am in the Gold Room. They have a really good time working on personal projects as well as mission projects. Not sure? Just pop in one Tuesday and see what everyone’s making!
FLOWERS FOR WORSHIP
Would you like to provide flowers for worship? The 2019 flower calendar is in the office hallway. Just record your name on the date you wish to reserve. You may choose to honor someone special or to remember a special event. If you would like Lesley Trafford to arrange your flowers, please call her two weeks in advance at 292-0370.
DO YOU HAVE A SONG IN YOUR HEART?
Well then...come and sing! The Chancel Choir is a group that enjoys singing and praising God. You are welcome to come any Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm, in the choir room. We park across from the Sanctuary and come in the main entrance. If you would like childcare for rehearsal, call the church office in advance. There is a warm chair waiting for you!
