After countless hours of data entry and crosschecking, the first draft of the pictorial church directory will be available as a Word file. Bring a blank Flash drive or rewritable CD to church on April 12, 19, or 26. After services those Sundays, David will be available to transfer the new directory to your drive or CD.

A big thank you to David for a lot of work over many months!

Web site “News” glitch

For reasons unknown, our web site news feed sent an email to subscribers on Sunday morning, May 11, about a Community meeting on December 15 to adopt the 2014 Budget. Since it is now May 2014, clearly we are not having a meeting next Sunday to adopt our 2014 Budget, since that ship sailed 5 months ago. 😉

We WILL have a brief informational meeting after the service next Sunday, May 18, to share some preliminary information related to our April 26 Consult.

Have a great week!

Poetry Sunday

Sunday, May 4 is Poetry Sunday at NCC! Delayed from our usual April observance during National Poetry Month, you are invited to bring an original or favorite poem by another poet to share with us. Hope you can join us!

Consultant Weekend

Congregational Consultant, the Rev. Sarai Rice, will be in town this weekend to meet with the congregation as well as the Steering Committee.

She will join us at 9am on Saturday morning in the CRC Chapel for a time with any interested NCC’ers, followed by lunch. During the afternoon she will meet with Steering Committee members. On Sunday morning she will be with us in worship, followed by a potluck (please bring a dish to share if you are able) before she heads back home to Des Moines.

We hope you can join us on Saturday and/or Sunday morning for this important event in our life as a community!
