Newsletter February 2017


Please join us for an afternoon of divine friendship at our potluck social this month, which focuses on the divine love at the heart of Valentine's Day.  Details appear below.

At our January General Membership Meeting, we voted to replace the foyer main doors to further enhance building security.  Mother Center has approved this improvement. We also formed a Nominating Committee to seek volunteers for the elected positions of Council Members, Service Readers, and Sunday School Teachers and Assistants. See details below if you are interested in serving Master in any of these capacities.

In Divine Friendship,
Rick Ludwick

Valentines Day Potluck Social & Video, Sunday, February 12th

We will have our monthly potluck on Sunday, February 12th, after services.  The theme will be Valentines Day and we will show the SRF video: "Be Messengers of God's Light and Love"  by Sri Mrinalini Mata.   Please bring a vegetarian dish, fruit juice or dessert if you plan to attend. We welcome you to join us and share an afternoon of divine friendship.  All are welcome. 

Nominating Committee for Elections Formed

At our January general membership meeting, we selected members to the Nominating Committee. They will seek nominations for our April elections, where we will vote for members to fill the elected positions of Council Members, Service Readers, and Sunday School Teachers and Assistants. 

A email blast will be sent the first week of February asking if you would like to be nominated to serve Master through any of these positions. Please respond, whether you are able to serve or not. Otherwise, the Nominating Committee will make a followup phone call to you. 

The email will also ask if you are interested in serving on any of the non-elected teams at our Center. Again, please respond, even if you are unable to serve. 

Thanks so much for your responses. 

We are extremely thankful for all the time and efforts the Center's volunteers make to further Master's work.
