Baby Bottle Campaign

The Outreach Committee will be sponsoring a Baby Bottle Campaign to benefit A Hope Center, whose mission is to offer hope in pregnancy and life. The baby bottles will be available to pick up beginning at the Ash Wednesday service on February 10. Please fill the bottles with your extra cash or change and return them to the church by Palm Sunday, March 20. Thank you!

 

New Testament Bibles

In the back of the sanctuary, fellowship hall and in the narthex are paperback editions of the New Testament. Please take one and keep it if you need it, or give it to someone you think may want it – a neighbor, friend, co-worker, or even a stranger. This would be an easy way to share Christ’s message, love, and redeeming grace.
