Note to the Congregation
For the past several years our church has given Thanksgiving Baskets to needy families in the community. This year, if we want this tradition to continue we need 1 or possibly 2 or 3 people to work together to oversee the project. If this is something you would have a heart for, call the church office and leave your name.
