New Year's "Sharing Pictures" Potluck Service

During the past year many people have spoken to me about how meaningful was the service where we sat at table and shared pictures from our life.  We will have such an experience again at the end of December.  We will sit around tables, enjoy a potluck, and speak about our story through pictures.  Thus, I invite you to comb your albums for pictures that speak of significant times in your life.  We already have three people who will start the conversation at a given table.  If you would like to initiate the discussion at your table, please call the church office.
