* This Saturday, January 19, the Social Action Team invites you to the local edition of the National Women’s March will be held on the Sonoma Plaza at 10:00 a.m. Organized by a group of local, progressive activists, the event will feature a diverse roster of speakers followed by a march around the plaza. We will meet at church at 9:45 a.m. and walk to the plaza together. Bring your Joy and Justice church signs with messages of peace and inclusivity.

 * This Sunday, while Curran is out of the office, Candi Horton will lead the 8:30 service following the same format as Curran’s 8:30 services. Bill Hutchinson leads and preaches the 10:30 service. His sermon title is “Who Calls on You?”

* February Grapevine items are due no later than noon on Thursday, January 24.

* Don’t miss the Annual Meeting on Sunday, January 27, following the 10:30 worship service! Bring some finger-foods to share for sustenance, and join in the fellowship and celebration of 2018. Here’s some good news – we ended 2018 with a financial SURPLUS! We will take a vote on the Council’s recommendation to put the surplus into our Major Maintenance Reserve fund. And, come to learn about some new tools to help us be better connected and to engage in some brain-storming for 2019. See you there! Susan Kelchner, Moderator

Take good care,
