Thank you for those who have been bringing in donations! Please note with the ending

Also, the Evangelism Committee is looking into other organizations to work alongside
with long-term in distributing the clothing and food donations. In the meantime,
those items will be given to Bridge the Gap.
We are putting together a new church directory. Please complete the sheet that is
