Good Morning and Happy New Year! This past year on the Communications Committee, we were focused on coming up with different approaches and focuses for the Committee to improve overall communications. I would like to thank the members of the committee (Jerry, Karissa, Kim, Larry and Pastor Meggan) for their help with providing updates and changes to the reader board throughout the year. We also were hoping to try and help these folks with getting into and out of the sign by changing out the locks. We had a locksmith come out and change those out but unfortunately, we are still battling with the heat swelling the doors so we will continue to see if we can’t get that fixed for these folks.
Some other areas that the committee worked on throughout the year are as follows:
- Storytelling videos that have been completed and posted on the church website and YouTube Channel. Also had other platforms for storytelling including the Church Camp out and coffee hour
- Monthly mailings to the congregation
- Reading of the Advent Daily Devotionals on Facebook Live by Pastor
- Also focusing on community connections through outdoor events such as Ashes on the Go, Food Trucks and Lawn Games, Pet Blessing, and Longest Night
As we go into 2023, we are looking to expand our committee membership to help expand communication with both our congregation and our local community. If this is something that you are able to help us out with, please come and speak to me or any of the committee members as we are looking to grow the committee through volunteers and our reach.
Fellowship Time after worship is happening weekly
We had Soup Suppers during Lent and Advent
The Easter Breakfast was a great success
There was good attendance at the Food Trucks and Lawn Games event in June and the Game Night in November.
