EVICTION OF THE ANTS As it gets closer to summer, ants like to find water and edibles within the church. We have formally given them their eviction notice and are presently treating the problem. However, they will continue to squat if we make it comfortable for them. Please clean up all food, crumbs, etc. you may have on the tables, floors, counters to help us combat this problem. If you have food or kids who have food, please be diligent. If you are using the kitchen equipment, please remember to run the disposal before the dishwasher. As a reminder, the office staff will be putting up signs as well.
NOW THAT OUR BIBLES AND HYMNALS ARE IN THE PEWS, we want to get the old ones out to people who will treasure them. Most of those books have dedications in them. Please stop by the table in Friendship Hall after the service to see if you or someone you love dedicated one (or more!). There is a slip of paper in each one indicating the names inside. Please take what you like. We will be working to contact people who do not attend church but might want one. After May 7, we will assume you have taken what you wanted and will find homes for as many as possible. Also, if there is an error, or you would like to change a dedication you made in the new books, we can still make those changes. Please contact Ardis Belknap or Wendy Kelsh to make corrections.
“A PLACE FOR ALL PEOPLE” FILM FESTIVAL is presently being hosted by the Cottage Grove Public Library. The festival displays works directed by black Americans in conjunction with “A Place For All People,” the Smithsonian African-American History poster exhibit featured in the library during the month of May. Everything Thursday at 5:30PM, a film will be shows in the Reception Hall of the community center.
