October 2016 Encounter

Hello All,

Happy October Newsletter reading!

Two things of note about this publication:

  1. The responsibilities list has changed quite a bit already. Please double check your dates. There is an opening for fellowship servers yet for October 16th that I have not figured out. Give the office a call and let me know if anyone wants to volunteer, otherwise I’ll be calling.
  2. There is an article in here about racism and culture. It is long but I hope you find it as enlightening as I did.

Have a wonderful evening today.

Karen
