A reminder that there is a Special Meeting of the Congregation of River Glen on Sunday, November 12. Our Nominating Committee is excited to present candidates for the next classes of Elders and Deacons.
The Transitional Pastor Search team is working through final details for a 3-month, renewable agreement for a Gap/Bridge Pastor while also continuing the search for a qualified Transitional Pastor candidate. We are exploring some new and innovative methods to find candidates both using the CLC (Church Leadership Connection) matching system, and means outside of it.
Session approved an expenditure to convert the lights in our parking lot to LED which is offset by rebates, will reduce our electricity bill, and reduce replacement costs of current lights, providing a significant return on investment.
The children decided to support Heifer International and purchase animals using their Change for Change collections and an allocation from the Serving Outside Our Doors team. They are excited to use the money for HI to purchase a Milk Menagerie ($1000), Dream Baskets ($240), Earth Gift Baskets ($120), Honey Bees ($60), a flock of chicks ($40), and a flock of ducks ($40).
