Our church-wide pig drive is off to a great start.  The drive continues through May.  If you would like to help give a family in poverty a hand-up not a hand-out, help us give them a PIG! 

The price is $120 per pig (any size donation is welcome).  You can drop a check in the offering plate (Payable: LHUMC Memo line: Pig) or your favorite UMW member will accept cash or checks.
