Calling All Adult and Teenage Women - Sewists & Non-SewistsLadies, did you know that girls in third world countries face a monthly obstacle in attending school? Lack of facilities and supplies often mean that girls miss up to 8 months of school every 3 years, resulting in limited education, and lower earning potential and status.

Annual Parish Meeting Report and Walking the Way IngatheringThe Annual Parish Meeting, Sunday, January 25, was a tremendous review of the year behind us, and look forward to all the mission and ministry that lies ahead! We elected new officers, recognized leaders in ministry, and blessed the ingathered pledges. The results are exciting. If you have not had a chance to turn in your pledge care, please bring it by the office, mail it in, or drop it in the plate soon! Bless your generous hearts, which give to God what is God's!

"Lookin' for Friends in All the Right Places"Would you like to spend a couple of hours on a Thursday morning with old friends, and maybe make some new ones? Well, look no further. The Seekers invite you to join this growth group of Seasoned Seniors who love good coffee, good snacks, good conversation and lively discussions.
