Bereavement Time -
Pastoral Care Team and the Ministry Coordinator are granting Pastor Dave September 3-8 as Bereavement Time. Since the death of Dave's father occurred during his holiday time, it feels appropriate to honor his contract which grants bereavement time. Pastoral care needs during that time can be addressed to Nate Gingerich.
Volunteer Fair –
Thank you to all who have signed up for leadership and service at Wilmot for the coming church year. There are still significant places of service available – in particular Administration and Pastoral Care. If you have questions about these or other places of service please talk with John Good or Dave Rogalsky.
