Friday Update

Prophets and Profit
June 12, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. Online and in-person 
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson
Throughout history, people have claimed that wealth and power are a consequence or a sign of spiritual blessing.  It is the gods, or God, who has made them profitable.  But others have said that it is more important to be prophetic than to make a profit.  We’ll explore the relationship between faithfulness and “the bottom line.”

We will elect officers and approve budget-related items.  We’ll also approve the revised mission and vision that the Board worked on this year.  Please look at this agenda in advance! 
If you have any questions, please ask me, President Amanda Tapfield, or Treasurer Teresa Wilmot in advance. 
All members can vote on these items.  Please participate so that we can carry out the work of the church together.

Urgent and Important message regarding Auctria auction bidding…
It is awkward, but if you are bidding on a place in a dinner event, you must make a new bid for each person attending.
We apologize for making it difficult, but most people seem to have figured it out and are bidding twice, if that is their intent.  Thank you for your understanding!

Peggy & Wendy, auction co-chairs
