DUC Closed due to snow storm...

In anticipation of the powerful storm headed for our area, the church and church offices will be closed Tuesday, January 27th.

The church and offices will also be closed until at least noon on Wednesday, the 28th, to make sure the plow service has been to DUC.

Given the probable range of the storm, and the difficulty we have in plowing and shoveling the walks, ramps and doorways, planned activities for Wednesday night(bells and choir 5 and 7pm) will also be cancelled.

Mark Your Calendars!

Our Annual Meeting has been scheduled for Saturday, February 14th at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary.

Our Annual Budget Meeting will, therefore, take place one week prior – Saturday, February 7th at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary.  This will give us a chance to vote on accepting the proposed budget.

Please try to attend both of these very important church meetings!

From The Deacons

The Deacons completed their annual pastor’s performance review evaluation for John Brink.  A committee from the Deacons met with John, discussed his evaluation and helped him develop his goals for 2015.  From the Deacons, the process continues to Church Council and Trustee representatives.  We were honored to be a part of this important by-law process.   


The totals are in for 2014 sales to our congregation- just over $46,000! Translated, it means that about $2,300 went to Housing Assistance Corporation and its program of helping qualified but financially troubled families to remain in their homes. This is the effective way of family homelessness prevention, and its cost to us is ZERO.  How can you beat that!! We could do even better if more of us joined in and used our cards when food shopping.  Think about it!
