From Keith:  It’s time for a new leader for our Men’s Ministry.  I stepped into the role pre-pandemic and led a book study on “How God Makes Men.”  It quickly moved into virtual meetings where I was introduced to the software, Zoom.  Over the course of the pandemic we squeezed in a few in-person meetings at the church where we met in a circle, wearing masks, at least six feet apart…You know the drill.  Eventually we started meeting at restaurants where we would discuss a religious topic chosen for the night.  We hoped meeting in public would affect a little bit of discipline.  Allowing others around us to see a group of men discussing God.
The meals started at twice a month, then once a month, then every other month…So, either the food got stale, or I did.  It is time for a fresh personality to help gather the men to discuss topics about men and how to keep God in our lives.  Dinner, breakfast, tea time, sports outings…You get to choose.  Please contact me, Keith Hays 614-634-1671 with any questions.

Nursery Attendant Needed:
Please talk to any Seniors or College age Young Adults that you might know who could be with our little ones on Sunday mornings.  Have them contact Pastor Sally!
