Gideon Cards

Our church has a Gideon card rack on the counter in our narthex. Those cards are an excellent way to give a card in "sympathy of", or in "recognition of" someone and at the same time support the Gideon International Ministry by purchasing however many Bibles you’d like to. It is a gift that will not wither or fade and with eternal consequence, as His Word will not return void. There are also cards for other occasions. Please check them out on the welcome counter.

Salvation Army Food Drive null

The Social Ministry Committee is sponsoring a non-perishable food drive during the month of August to support the Salvation Army. The most needed items include macaroni and cheese, soups, and canned fruits or vegetables. Brown bags are available in the Narthex. Please return your bag to the metal shelves in the Fellowship Hall. 

ÔĽŅThank you for your¬†support!
