Take a look at the sheet and see where you might share your talents and skills. All tasks may commence immediately. This is a take-it-upon yourselves endeavor. Come in when you can (taking note of the calendar of church activities), during office hours or see Peggy about obtaining a key.

New Hymnals
In the pew card holders you will find envelopes for donations for the new hymnals. Forms are tucked inside for your information.
