Crisis Control Ministry
The Holidays are fast approaching. One of the best things about this busy time of year is that our kitchens are filled with the good aromas coming from those cookies, cakes and other desserts we bake. Crisis Control Ministry realizes this too. For the month of December, they are requesting BAKING SUPPLIES so their clients can also enjoy those same things. Fill your grocery cart with sugar, flour, cake mixes or anything else you might like to give and bring it to the church. Place them in the white container in the Education
Foyer and we will deliver them. Your stockings will be filled with multiple blessings!
Christian Action Ministry
If you didn't turn in your pledge card and need one you may print one off HERE, find one on the table in the sanctuary, see Alanna in the church office, or send an email to email@example.com if you would like one emailed or mailed.
