THE “CARD PARTY” celebrates its 2nd anniversary during the month of September. Last year 592 birthday cards (20 more than last year) and 153 anniversary cards (the same as last year) were written. With the added postal expense of mailing most of the cards due to COVID, we are very grateful to all who are giving cards for ‘repurposing’! We welcome anyone interested in joining our outreach ministry to join us the third Tuesday of every month at 1:00 for an afternoon of fellowship and card writing at the church.

THANK YOU to the members who helped mow the cemetery this past week. Your help is appreciated!
