January Service Change

Dear Fellowship Members–

The memorial service for Fellowship member Jim Marshal will take place 2:00 PM SUNDAY, JANUARY 14, at Kendal in Oberlin–the same day as our regular service.  To free folks who are interested in attending the service for Jim, we have decided to cancel our service that day in Sandusky.  We hope to reschedule our speaker Julie Didelot for later in the spring.
