Request for Liturgists. If you are thinking about it, but feel you can’t do a whole month, don’t let that get in the way. We can always work around schedules. It really is a nice way to participate in the service and serve both the Lord and the congregation. Everything you need is provided each week. If you have email, Penny can email you the readings ahead of time, if you prefer. Talk to the other liturgists and get their perspective.  Please consider giving it a try!!  Thanks. Pam Wasley
