Urgent Clothes Closet Needs:  Our clothes closet is in urgent need of the following items:  new men's and women's cotton briefs in all sizes; women's sports bras; men's and women's ankle socks; and gently used men's  jeans and khakis in waist sizes 30 to 36.  Donations may be placed in the container in the chapel downstairs or dropped off in the church office.

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.
