THE STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE has so many ideas for growth, but we need YOU to make it happen! If you are a high school student who knows your way around a website (or you know someone who is!) we could use your help in keeping the church website updated. We are also always in need of new voices for our newsletter articles. No professional writing experience is needed to work as part of our team; topics are decided on collectively and editing help is given along the way. We just need you and your desire to help us reach out to our congregation! Contact Barb at email@example.com if you can help with either area or if you have any article ideas you would like to see us cover. Also, don’t forget to check out our updated on-line calendar at www.christlutheranorland.com to keep up on church events. If you can’t get our emailed version of the newsletter, be sure to look for hard-copies on the narthex table.
