FINANCIAL FACT

          Our General Fund needs a boost and Patti encouraged the congregation at our annual meeting to be thinking of some fun Fund raisers for 2019.

          Please keep in mind that our envelope donations to the General Fund keep our programs going in the church, keep the church in good repair, and offer many occasions for outreach to our surrounding community.

                   We appreciate all who donate their gifts of time, treasure, and talents.
