Annual Congregational Meeting

In January there are several council positions that will be open, and need to be filled in order for the business of the church to be completed.  Below you will see the list of open positions and the length of the term.  Some are one year terms as these seats needed to be filled last January and no one stepped forward.  In a few cases, the individuals who have extended their service for this year will not be able to continue. Please pray on how best you can serve your church family. You will not be abandoned if you step forward and are elected. You will receive help and guidance from past members, so please don't let this possible fear hold you back.  Up for election in January are the following:

  • President - 1 year term - 2 year term at re-election in 2021
  • Vice President - 2 year term
  • Treasurer - 1 year term - 2 year term at re-election in 2021
  • Secretary - 2 year term
  • Financial Secretary -  2 year term
  • Member-At-Large - 2 year term

There are still many committee and sub-committee positions that need to be filled.  Please take a few minutes to review the data in the committee binder to see is there is a role you can fill to help your church.  There is a binder at the back of the sanctuary.  If you know what committee or sub-committee you would like to serve please notify Sunni Leggate or Marcie Vallejo.

4th Quarter / End of Year Statements

Please note that the Financial Secretary is preparing the 4th quarter / end of year statements and they will be made available over the next few days.  They will be emailed to your email address, as it appears in the church directory.   If you do not receive your copy in your email please check your spam/junk folder to make sure it wasn't caught there in error.  If it is not there, or if you wish a hard copy be printed, please email Sunni Leggate at or contact her by phone at 775-835-3951.  Of course, you can always speak to Sunni on Sunday in person as well.

I would also like to request, that if you haven't done so already, please sign up for an account at Using you can automate your weekly giving to occur automatically through your checking account, or with a credit or debit card, or give weekly via the app on your smart phone. You can also see a history of your giving through the year. Sunni or Iain Leggate can assist you if you get stuck or have any questions. Gift Of Grace Pledge

If you receive manufacturers coupons in the mail, or your Sunday paper, and have no use for some of them, or any of them, please bring them to Sunni Leggate. She will send them to Support Our Troops group in Florida. They distribute them to military families. If they are expired, or close, please bring them anyway as military families can use them on base up to six months past their expiration date.

If you do not have time to clip them, don't worry about it as Sunni will clip them, or maybe we will arrange a clipping party in the church hall one Sunday.

I would also like to thank all of you have been bringing coupons. It is greatly appreciated! Please keep them coming! Thank you!
