Sunday Coffee Hour
Our coffee hours seem to be getting very elaborate.Let’s try to get back to the basics having bagels, rolls, breakfast cakes or other treats to go along with tea and coffee. That is up to the hostess sponsoring the coffee hour.
If you want to celebrate a special event with a more elaborate coffee hour for all to enjoy, that is up to the hostess.
The Sunday coffee hour serves two purposes. One, profit for the church and two, to bring people together socially which is very important. Many thanks to all the hosts and hostesses who continue to support this tradition.
If you would like to prepare a coffee hour see Nana Tasiashvili or Barbara Driscoll.
The summer season has begun and people will be going away on vacation and engaging in other summer activities. Church attendance already has declined considerably and the weekly church offerings have been much less. However, the regular monthly expenses and other maintenance expenses are still there and must be paid. Please remember when you return from being away to include your offerings for the Sundays you missed.
