LOSING TOUCH . . .?
In this time of corona virus (now approaching a year of social distancing and disruption to our worship services) it's easy to lose touch with those in our church family.

If you know someone in the church family who could use some encouragement, has a need, or might be feeling alone...please notify the church office or contact Lynda McGinnis.
