Thanks Again...
We may have a closed sanctuary and be social distancing but nothing can stop the open hearts of Faith!  Thank you to all the volunteers who stepped forward and made sure that personalized Christmas gifts were bought and delivered to all 15 Forget Me Nots! It’s wonderful to see God's love continue to shine throughout this time even when we can’t be together but can still support one another with His love and goodness. 
Merry Christmas!
Caroline Frantz
