If members of the Congregation are interested in helping out with a cleaning crew occasionally, but do not want to committ to being on a crew, we would certainly appreciate any help you can offer. If you are interested, simply contact Gary Kroll at (254) 715-4206 and let him know when and what you would like to do so that he can make the cleaning crew that week aware of your help.

If you need to get in touch with her, please email her at her personal email  or text her.  If you need more inforamtion contact the church office.
