HAVE YOU TURNED IN YOUR PLEDGE CARD?
Please send it in to the office this week if you have not already done so. And don’t forget - also send in your Time & Talent Form. We have already had a few wonderful people placed in some volunteer positions, and offerings of some talents (such as baking, gardening, carpentry…) that we will use someday! Did you know that you can have the church office automatically withdraw your pledge payments each month from your account so you don’t have to worry about it? See Laurie Clements in the office - and she can help you with this!
