Greetings Casper Disciples!
I don't have a full list of who all from FCC is registered to attend Fall Feast this weekend - please feel free to share this information with others you know plan to attend, either as a fully registered participant or a volunteer.
 
One of the things that happens every other year at Regional Assembly/Fall Feast is the election of district representatives to serve on the Regional Board.  We are in the Northern District.  During breakfast on Saturday morning at 8 a.m. in Fellowship Hall, there will be a somewhat informal meeting of the Northern District.  Come at 8, pick up your pastries/fruit/coffee/juice and sit at one of the tables on the stage or closest to the stage.  Doug Goodwin (pastor from Sheridan) will lead this time together, explaining a little about our district, some of the hopes for increased connection among our congregations, and guide a conversation about selecting our "at large" board rep.
 
Among those willing to serve in this position are Rev. Barb Crowder (bio attatched) and Rev. Mark Pumphrey (former moderator, long-time pastor in CRMR).
 
ANY and ALL Northern District folks are welcome to join this conversation, but I especially ask our voting delegates to try to be present - both for this morning breakfast meeting and for the business session in the sanctuary after lunch.
 
BLESSINGS!
See you at the Feast!
-Pastor Cynthia
 
P.S. Breakfast is included in the registration fee - but even if you're coming as a non-registered volunteer, I think there will be enough coffee to share and you're still welcome to sit in on this conversation to learn more about our district & the workings of the region.  :)
