Teach us to praise you, Lord. Open our minds to your thoughts. Free our voices to sing.

~ Memorial Bulletin Info
We wish to thank you for a successful 2009 Memorial Bulletin Campaign! In our first year every Sunday was adopted in memory or in honor of a loved one. Dates are open for 2010. Forms are available on the table in the foyer and in each months newsletter. They may be returned to the church office with your $10 donation.
~ Can You Help?
To date, no one has stepped forward to lend a hand in the nursery. We need volunteers who will stay with the children during worship service on a rotating basis. If you are willing to help please call Ethel Clancy at 536-6265. (Several different people ensure that no one person is always missing service.) Thanks!

~ "Secret Place"
Dear Friends: In light of the possible deficit in the Bd. of Missions budget, we are trying to economize where we can. One item you can help us with is the SECRET PLACE. We spent $115 last year and took in $27.
In order to continue to supply the SECRET PLACE, we need to know HOW MANY regular issues and HOW MANY large print issues are needed. Please complete the attached form and return to a member of the Bd. Of Missions or to the Church Office. A contribution to offset the cost is greatly appreciated. - - Your Bd. Of Missions
would like a regular/large print (circle one) SECRET PLACE.
