Changes are Coming
At the January 13th meeting, our Church Council unanimously approved a plan to return to one worship service beginning March 1st and changing the time of our Sunday School to 9:30am and the Worship Service to 10:30am. This change will provide the opportunity for individuals who might find a 9:30am start time for Sunday School more inviting!
Helping Hands Food Pantry
A Helping Hands donator brought in Valentine Cake mixes and icings! What a super sensitive thing to do! Anytime you have a neat idea for the little extras that would make a client smile, act on it! We always need Birthday Bags with cake mixes, icing, plates, cups, napkins, streamers and any fun thing to make it a party in a bag!
