CONGREGATIONAL CARE MINISTRY UPDATE
We have re-established a Congregational Care Ministry team. Thank you to Anne Niday, Alice Rice, Nancy Whitson, Jane Nihan and Kay Glenny for serving. These five ladies and myself will be keeping in touch with 3 to 5 members of the Aldersgate family who cannot make it to church on a regular basis. The Care Ministry is a way to keep our church family connected when disconnection has been so common over the last two years. The Care Ministers will be there to listen, to answer questions, to pass on prayer needs and to just be there for our family members who can’t be there.
If you would like to hear from a Congregational Care Minister, or you know somebody who would, please contact Pastor Brett or Andy Gloor.
COMMITTEE CHAIRS: Please let the church office when the various committees will be meeting so we can have the information on the calendar for the Weekly, the Squeek and the bulletins and website. Also, it is up to the committee chairs to ensure that anyone who comes to a meeting in the church building is wearing a mask.
LUNCH & LEISURE: Lunch & Leisure will meet again on Friday, February 18, 2022, 11:30 am at the Backyard Grill and Bar, 6473 N. 2nd St in Loves Park. Jenny Graham is host. A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board outside the church office. Or contact the office or Jenny Graham by Wednesday, February 16th if you are attending.
Nelson Flowers will provide altar
flowers again as needed at a cost of $25 with a Friday morning delivery. The
signup sheet is on the bulletin board outside the office.
