Love Gift Offering
It’s that time of year again to think “above and beyond your stewardship offering” and seriously consider a special donation to LOVE GIFT. As you leaf through your dollar bills please be on the lookout for any bills that have an L or G (which stands for Love Gift) in the serial number. Prayerfully set them aside and we will be taking a collection at the end of June. You may however, hand them in at any time during the month of June. See Cheryl Stewart.
Congratulations on Your Graduation!
