Medical Expertise? Safe Congregations Wants to Know!

In the unlikely event of a medical emergency at the Fellowship, we would like to be able to quickly reach out to members and friends with medical expertise. To that end, we are updating our list of people who are trained doctors, nurses, physicians assistants, and others in the medical profession. If this sounds like you, and you agree to adding your name and contact information to our list, please contact Caron Armstrong or call the office. Thank you!

Fun & Games - Dinner & A Salem Band Holiday Concert

Join the Fun and Games Committee on Tuesday, December 19th for the annual Salem Band Holiday Concert preceded by dinner at O’so Eats Restaurant.  Titled Lessons and Carols, this year’s concert features not only our own Eileen Young conducting the Salem Band, but Rev. Lisa Schwartz as the guest narrator for the concert.  It promises to be a really enjoyable evening.

First Friday Potlucks

Let's keep these wonderful events happening in the coming year. A new way to share hosting responsibilities is being put into place for 2018. This will be an easy way for members to choose how they can be involved and which month they can do that. Our potlucks will happen every time those commitments are in place, so stay tuned for more details about how to communicate your willingness to volunteer for our 2018 events. Meanwhile, without a lead organizer, our December 1 potluck is cancelled. If you have questions, or would like to step up to make December 1st a "go", email our Membership Manager Caron Armstrong at Best, Patty Ricono
