First Friday Update

Friends, we want to thank everyone who attended or volunteered for First Friday for the 2018/2019 season. It has been a busy and great season. Unfortunately, we will be needing to end the season with our just completed April First Friday. As we end the year, we will be sending an email in the next month a survey to all volunteers and attendees gathering your impressions of the season just past and other information to aid us in this important outreach. If you have any comments or feedback until that comes out, please contact us at

Display of United States Flag in Little River UCC

A request has been made to place a 4x6 foot United States Flag in a vertical floor stand in a corner of the atrium near the church entry doors. Considerations, con and pro, to place the flag have been: (con) "separation of church and state," versus (pro) "significance of the flag's presence." This request has been suggested for a vote in a future congregational meeting (TBD). For background information on this request, you may contact Chris Weakley or Mike Nagy.

We discussed upcoming gatherings, especially the November 4th listening session and the victim impact statement that Pastor David is writing. Coffee hour teams need to be consolidated. Advent Fun Shops and Hanging of Greens need volunteers.
