The following concerns were addressed by the Coordinating Team during the past month:
Treasurer Linda Laskowski has been asked and has agreed to serve as the Treasurer to replace Anne Greenwood when her term ends in July 2013. The request has been approved by Board of Trustees. (II. Global Ends Statement: Community; III. Coordinating Team Limitations: K. Communication and Support to the Board and the Congregation)
Brokers Contract A contract has been signed with Cornish and Carey Commercial. There have been a lot of inquiries since the sign was posted and the availability of the RE building made known. We will be paying the broker a fee of 6% of the rental rate once a tenant is found. (II. Global Ends Statement: Stewardship; III. Coordinating Team Limitations: E. Financial Management and Planning)
Task Force for River of Life Mosaic A Task Force met and have recommended that the mosaic be mounted on the west wall of the breezeway extending over the stairs to the Conference Room. Kim Larson, the artist/designer, has come and viewed the space for its suitability and approves. (II. Global Ends Statement: Community; III. Coordinating Team Limitations: K.

Feburary’s Theme: “Love”
THE KING'S BRIDE - An intergenerational Worship Service which is designed to be a soap opera of how to find 'true love' and points out that 'love' and 'drama' often go hand in hand. By looking at the struggle for love in the kingdom, a king and the good people of the land learn a lot about themselves, each other, and the importance of love. QUESTION: What about love do we learn when we strip off all the drama often found within romance?
February 8 (One service at 11:00 a.m.)
HERE IF YOU NEED ME - Have you ever been needed by someone who was facing an unthinkable situation - one in which it seemed like the universe was unbearably cruel and unkind - and were afraid to show up because you knew not what to say? And yet, you had to show up, because the love you felt for the person made it unthinkable to stay away? What is it that allows us to say, "I'm here if you need me" and what do you bring with you when they call?
Congregational Meeting in the Social Hall immediately following the service.
THE MYTHS AND REALITIES OF TRUE LOVE - Valentine’s Day, at least as it's described by Hallmark, is filled with swooning and fawning, batting eyes, and falling in love. But what happens after the card has been read, kisses have been shared, and all the candy hearts have been finished off? That's when we get to see if the love we worked for is the love that's true. QUESTION: What is 'true love' and how does it differ from the schmaltzy, commercialized, 'Hallmark' understanding of love?
Bob Miess, Ministerial Settlement Representative (MSR) from the Pacific Central District, preaches on how to find the next settled minister.
