The next Rebecca Circle meeting will take place on Tuesday, February 21st at 11:30am at Johnny Carino's, located at 4410 17th Avenue South in Fargo!
Just wanted to put some upcoming projects on the radar for here at the church out of the office.
1) New Directories- I want to completely revamp how we do the directory and want to establish an
online directory that is password protected. I'd like to change the format, get new pictures, and get
the directory caught up. (Timeline: April-May)
2) Key Control- I'd like to put together a detailed key control log to track where all of our keys for the church are at. Security is becoming more and more of an issue these days. I want to make sure we can account for all keys in the church. (Timeline: March)
3) Music Filing- I'd like to go upstairs and go through the many file cabinets of music we have and get them into an organized filing system including a database so we can track what music we have. We have a lot of music here! (Timeline: May-June)
If you have any interest in helping of if you have some ideas that could help in these tasks, please let me know!

For all of those who attend the Contemporary Worship Service at 11am each Sunday, we hope that you are enjoying the changes that have been taking place since the start of the year. We have slowly moved some different ways of doing business into the service and hope to hear your feedback on how we're doing, what you like, and what you might suggest we try doing!
We've been striving to energize the service, giving our Worship Leaders and the band a more active role in the service, and worked to bring the congregation more into the service by participation and encouragement through the Worship Team's energy.
Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear your feedback!
Christopher Hanson, Worship Team Leader
