Due to a procedural glitch the vote on our 2014 council nominees has been postponed until December 22nd. We will hold a suspended meeting format immediately following both services. Please make an effort to attend church on the 22nd and hang around after service for a brief election vote.
- December 1, 2013 – Suspended meeting format after both services to nominate Church Council Candidates for 2014.
- December 8, 2013 – 12:30pm in the Fellowship Hall to elect Church Council members for 2014 and to review and approve the 2014 budget. This meeting will be preceded by a potluck dinner, which follows the 11:00am worship.
Please plan to attend. A quorum is required for each meeting.
Please note the following dates for two congregation meetings:
Next Sunday. immediately following each service, there will be a congregational meeting to review and vote on Annual Reports, Nominating Committee, Minutes of 2012 Meetings, and Annual Congregation Goals. A quorum is required, and all members of APLC are requested to remain for the meeting.

Be sure to stop by the Fellowship Hall after worship on Sunday, February 3rd to check out the AIM (Areas in Ministry) Fair. Explore the many ministries of our congregation and reacquaint yourself with the variety of teams. There’s something for everyone, and you may just find your “calling.”
Wednesday, January 30th at 7:00pm. Potluck at 6:00pm.
The Congregational Meeting for the purpose of voting on the 2013 budget and election of 2013 council will be held on November 18th immediately following the 2nd service. Please consider that a quorum will be required for this meeting so everyone is encouraged to attend and participate. As added incentive, there will be a pot luck lunch in conjunction with the meeting!
Please sign up in the narthex for our 30 minute Listening Post sessions to be held on November 15 to 17. As part of understanding our congregation and as outlined in our November newsletter, please meet with Tom Kebba, an expert in helping congregations learn from the past to move forward. Your one on one confidential session will consist of a few questions to help stimulate thoughts about APLC.
The Congregational Council and the Mutual Ministry team are sponsoring a short questionnaire of our congregation. As we celebrate our upcoming twenty year anniversary as a con- gregation, the two teams thought it would be helpful to understand how the congregation can be better served and be a congregation full of sharing God’s grace.
Accessible via the front page of our website (www.doveandcross.org), your participation is critical and should take you roughly five minutes to complete (paper copies are available in the narthex). The questionnaire will be open through Monday, September 3. All confirmed members and visitors are welcome to participate – please respond only one time(!!!) Please let Hugh Bannard or Mark Glaspey know if you have any questions.
