Dear Fellow Church Members,

How nice to be remembered! Thank you for thinking of me, for the sentiments expressed in your care cards and sending those cards my way. They mean so very much to me. 

What a beautiful sanctuary we have! Thank you to our Trustees and all participants who are involved in this renewal. 

Sincerely,

Martha Self Tredaway

Christmas Play Needs Christmas Trees!

Please be on the lookout for Christmas trees of ALL shapes and sizes; we will need LOTS of trees for this year's play! 

They don't have to be purchased new, (unless you would like to donate them) but if you bring one to loan us, please make sure that your name is on it, and we will return it to you ASAP afterwards.

(NOTE: 3 foot minimum size)

As always, thank you so much for contributing to Children's Ministries!
