On Sunday, February 4 there will be “One All-Church Worship Service” at 10am followed by the Annual Congregational Meeting. Whether you are a longtime First Pres member or newer to the community, you are invited to join in worship, lunch and the congregational meeting on the 4th.
Most of lunch will be catered by Barone’s. Only if your last name starts with N-Z, please bring fruit or dessert. If you need gluten-free food, consider bringing a gluten-free item to share. Volunteers are needed for set-up at 11:30am on Saturday, February 3, and for serving and clean-up on Sunday, February 4. If you can lend a hand before, during, or after the luncheon, please contact Deacon Char Workman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 630-915-4144. All jobs are guaranteed to be easy and fun!
Children’s Programming on February 4
We invite children (grades 1-5) to begin the service with their families and be dismissed during the Passing of the Peace. Preschoolers and Kindergarteners may begin the morning in the Sanctuary with their families or in their regular classrooms at 10am. Following worship please pick up your child, birth thru 5th grade, for lunch as a family in the gym. After lunch we will make an announcement to let parents know child care will open for the meeting. Child care locations are John Knox Hall (K-5th) and the Nursery (birth – age 5).
During the meeting the congregation will receive the 2017 Annual Ministry Report, review congregational financials, vote on 2018 pastoral compensation, elect the 2018 Nominating Committee and be introduced to the new Director of Student Ministries, Blake Riboli.
