 It’s a New Year and we have plenty of slots available for folks to sign up to bring light refreshments for Coffee Hour. Whether you attend the first or second service, both are in need of volunteers. It's as easy as dropping off your items to the Fellowship Hall kitchen: a member of Congregational Life will take care of the rest.
