Relay for Life: Luminary Sunday
Once again I will be selling luminaries in the Great Room immediately following worship service. They cost $5 per bag and can be made in honor or in memory of someone you know whose life has been touched by cancer.
The Relay, an all night walk event to raise money for cancer research, education and patient services, will be held on June 4th and 5th at the Fireman's Field.
The luminaries line the track and are lit at the candlelight ceremony at 10 pm on the 4th. They remain lit the rest of the night and light the way to a cure.
Please come and join us and see what the Relay is all about. Thank you so much for your support and desire to make a difference. For more information call Pam Scutt at 536-2791.
