PEEK OF THE WEEK! 
for the week of 
February 23rd, 2020
 

THE WORSHIP COMMITTEE WOULD LIKE YOUR HELP
SERVING  COFFEE ON SUNDAY MORNINGS!

 
If you haven’t served before and would like help, we can partner you up with someone who has served to show you the ropes.  As many of you have noticed you don’t have to bake for days, a few store bought cookies will do. Nothing fancy (Pastor’s personal choice is Sandwich Cookies, chocolate/vanilla creme center). Coffee is provided by the church (if you are unsure how to use the coffee maker) written instructions are in the kitchen or if you prefer hands on instructions just ask.  Juice for the kids is nice but water works just as well. I know some who serve have provided meat/cheese and fruit. It’s wonderful to have healthy options, but again not necessary.  We are now using glass mugs and the dish washers, but again, if you are not sure how to operate instructions can be given.

Please consider serving, sign up has been sparse, and Fellowship Hour is a “BIG” part of Cross and keeping our Church Family connected!  


Thank you!
