There will be one service of worship at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 28.
YOUR annual meeting will happen during that service.
Please plan to attend! Among other things, it will give you an opportunity to see where your contributions of time, talent, and treasure are spent and if you are new to the area and/or to CHS, you might be surprised to see how many opportunities there are for us all to “pay it forward”. You will also have an opportunity to recognize our current vestry members for their extraordinary efforts over this past year and to vote on the new candidates for 2018 and beyond.
