Splinters from the Board
Wow, it’s October already! As Fall arrives, its great to know that Tapestry is thriving - We’ve been in our new building now for 9 months, attendance has been good, and in September we welcomed 13 new members. Plenty is happening right now. Our Worship Committee is working with Kent to create some great Sunday services. Our incredible Service Auction is right around the corner - on October 19, you can add fun social events to your fall and winter calendar while helping to support our community. Then there are various book groups, and the Minister’s Seminar to attend, and a chance to join a Covenant group. Think about joining a committee or the choir. We will be renewing our Welcoming Congregation status this year with a film/discussion series, dedicated LGBTQ services, the observance of important LGBTQ milestones, and possible collaborations with local LGBTQ organizations.
Check out the newsletter for details and ways to get more involved. As Rev. Kent recently stated, Tapestry is about fun and community, so join in! Where do we go from here? We have a Strategic Planning Committee working on ideas for the path forward. And remember that at Tapestry, everyone’s point of view is important and nobody should ever feel left out.
The Board is always open to receiving suggestions and feedback. We have new ribbons under our name tags to make us easy to identify. Feel free to seek us out on Sundays and share your thoughts and concerns with us. Now, enjoy the cooler Fall weather and get ready to celebrate Halloween. Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner, and we’re even contemplating a New Year’s Eve party at Tapestry, so join in this autumn for the fun and community.
