From the Executive Board
Bob Kottkamp has announced that he will not stand for reelection to the office of Church President at the coming Annual Meeting in November.
The Board asks that members of the congregation give serious consideration either to volunteering for the post or nominating others whom the Board might encourage.
Bob is open to discussing the responsibilities of office with anyone including those potentially interested in the position and those wanting more information as part of nominating others. He does not believe it incumbent upon him to find a person to fill the position.
Our guest organist this morning is Karlaine Livingston of Claremont, New Hampshire. We thank her for being with us today.
