The word “volunteer” is noteworthy of being one that both identifies a person for what they will do (noun) and describes what they do in that role (verb).  The definitions for both noun and verb indicate a person who freely offers to do something often without being asked. Or paid! Volunteer is a word applied generously around First Congregational Church for the many ways our members and friends help to make this a church of community and cooperation. Therefore, the Staff of First Congregational Church is pleased to invite everyone to join them for a meal of appreciation next week, February 1st during our weekly “Imagine” Wednesday activities, beginning at 5:30 p.m.  A responsive worship service centered in gratitude for all of your volunteer efforts starts at 6:15 p.m.  All are welcome!  Please RSVP by Tuesday, January 31st and join us in celebration and thanks!
