COTC KEY REGISTRATION & TURN-IN: If you are a member or a former officer of the church who still has a set of COTC keys, please turn them into a member of the Corporate Operations Team (Kim Greindl, Marla Tischler, or Stewart Truelsen), or bring them to the church office during office hours. For insurance, safety and liability reasons; COTC must maintain a registry of individuals with key access to the building. We also would like to reduce the expenses incurred in copying keys for new officers instead of passing on unused keys to current leaders needing them. Help us by turning in your keys if you no longer are in a ministry leadership position, or by registering your keys if you have not formerly completed a key form with the church office.
Those who are not currently active officers, but who may need keys for current ministries being performed, please complete a Request for Building Keys form and return it to the church office. (Forms are available in the box outside the office.) The Corporate Operations Team will take action on such requests and the church office will be back in touch with you after their consideration.
Hospitals do not call if you or anyone in your family is hospitalized. Please call the church office with any illness or need so that we can offer the friendly resources of the church as soon as possible. If you want a concern listed in our bulletin Prayers Concerns or want to have your concern taken out of the bulletin, complete a Prayer Card found in the pew racks and place it in the offering plate.
Unless otherwise noted, names will appear on the list for 4 Sundays.
