Congregational Care Task Team

Valentine's DayIn the service of caring for all members of the congregation Congregational Care Task Team invites members to assist in many acts of Hospitality. On Sunday Mornings members of the congregation take turns acting as Coffee Host.

During the months of January, February, and March these members have served or will serve as Coffee Host(s): Joanne Jones, Eleanor Satterlee, Soo Kim, Chip Clark, Lois Ville and Joanne Jones, Nana Spiridon and Thelma Parodi, Carolyn Shepard, Thelma Tuttle, Marilyn Hunwick,. We have not completed the month of March with Hosts. If you are wondering how you may help, please speak to any of these hosts in person, by telephone, or by email.

On Friday, February 14, Valentine’s Day, we celebrated Love and Fellowship with a Potluck meal and a time for visiting with one another. Pastor Tripp and Intern Doug Davidson placed serving tables in convenient places and set out tables and chairs for guests. They constructed and decorated a Celebration Banner and gathered together valentines for the tables. Thelma Tuttle and Carolyn Shepard completed table decorations including balloons and colored ribbons. Lynn and Marilyn Hunwick shared some of their prize Camellias for all to enjoy. The kitchen “crew” set forth organizing utensils for serving our meal. Our Crew was led by Joanne Jones, daughter, Ann Jones Simmons, Carolyn Shepard, Sachiko Berry, Marilyn Hunwick, Thelma Tuttle, Laura Garcia,and Eleanor Satterlee. Clean -up helpers were Melanie Ramirez, Joanne Jones, and Hugh Satterlee, assisted by members of the “crew.”

The Next Potluck is Friday, March 21, at 6 o’clock. Please make plans now to join the gathering.
