Sticky Fondue Micro-Retreat for EM leaders

exps29227__HC54788D183This Saturday, English Ministry leaders (staff, elders, deacons, small group and fellowship leaders, Sunday school teachers, praise band, youth core, and youth counselors) will meet for a micro-retreat (9 am – 2 pm).

A tentative overview of our time is pasted below.

I’d like to invite each couple or family or individual to bring drinks or fruits or pastries. I’ll order take out or catering. Sarah Tai will provide child-care for elementary and middle school kids. I hope that everyone – from PreK to Seniors – will be able to enjoy our time together!

See you Saturday at 9 am in Worship Hall 3!!
