CWS Blankets - Central Christian Church in Indianapolis
...OCWM giving changes in January
Now that we are officially one Association with a new name, when should you start to make your checks out differently for OCWM and other gifts? From now until December 31, 2018 you should continue to make your checks out as you have in the past (Eastern Ohio Association or Western Reserve Association). Beginning January 1, 2019, you should make your checks payable to Living Water Association. Please make sure your treasurer or bookkeeper gets this information.
As part of their 175th anniversary celebration, Grace United Church of Christ (13275 Cleveland Ave NW, Uniontown) will sponsor a free concert featuring the Harmony Ringers of Ohio.
