Third Floor Bathroom Update

     Stop by to see the progress on our project.  We hope to have it in service soon.  We are looking for a donation of a free standing changing table for this room as well.  Contact Judi in the Church Office if you can help.

Habitat House

The Habitat for Humanity House being built in Timberville is moving forward.  The Ruritans are looking to gather a list of volunteers and skills (basic construction, drywall, painting, etc.).  If you do not have a construction skill but would like to help that is also welcome.  Habitat for Humanity’s insurance requires that volunteers be 16 years old.  There is a signup sheet in the Narthex for people interested.  Construction will start in the Spring (late March/early April) next year depending on weather.

Directory Updates

Please make sure the church office has your correct address, phone, email, birth date & anniversary.  You may email the above information to or put your written updates in the door pocket of the church office.  If you are not listed in our church directory & would like to be, please let us know!

   The Nominating Commission invites you to complete an Interest Finder Survey. Blank forms are available on the table in the back of the narthex.  Completed forms may be placed in the basket at the same location.  In addition an electronic version is available here:

    Completing the survey will not obligate you for any job, service, or responsibility. The Nominating Commission is seeking to find your interests as part of our church family.
