SUNDAY, FEB. 7: NAME TAG SUNDAY AND POTLUCK LUNCHEON TO WELCOME NEW MEMBERS

We will all fill out and wear name tags in honor of our new members and to help us learn each others'
names.

POTLUCK LUNCHEON to welcome our new members is also this Sunday following the late service.
Everyone is invited. If your last name is A-L bring a side dish; J-R bring a main dish; S-Z bring a salad,
bread or dessert. The Fellowship Committee will provide paper goods, plastic-ware, iced tea and
coffee.

Cards will be available to jot down your name and main ingredients and placed by your dish. Many
times we hear, "I sure would like to know who made this so I can get the recipe."  

After the event, if you can, please help us with the clean-up. We appreciate your kind assistance!
