Can You Help?

We have a need for garden tools. Hand Trimmer, Hand/Long Hoe, Wheel Barrel. Bring them into the church office. They would be greatly appreciated.


Thank You: To the little church mouse who tended to the grounds over the weekend!!


Please Take Note: In an effort to create more space in the shed in the church parking lot we will be removing a number of items. These include a chest of drawers and a large number of boxes containing Christmas decorations, faux fur and other materials for making stuffed animals. Any of these items should be removed by the owners.

After June 15, we intend to donate them to the Once Again Shoppe.
