Plastic Grocery Bags Needed by the Soup Kitchen! We are running extremely low on plastic grocery bags in the Soup Kitchen, which we use to distribute food and hygiene items. If these bags are piling up at your house, we would love to take them off your hands! There is a tub in the chapel to collect them for the next several weeks. Thanks for helping out!
Remember Your Pledges and Offerings! Our busy schedules sometimes keep us from being in worship every Sunday, but the work (and expenses!) of the church continue throughout the year. Please remember to keep your pledges and offerings current.
