4 things to know about this week's Forward Sunday
  1. It's Double Day for our children and students. They're asked to bring a guest and dress alike, with a prize in the bargain.
  2. It's Double-Double Day for our congregation! We've set an offering goal that is four times our usual Sunday offeringto help the church close this year's gap between income and expenses.
  3. Rajan Ipe, who our church launched into ministry nearly 50 years ago, will be our guest speaker. Rajan has founded more than 50 churches in India and Yonkers, New York.
  4. The day will conclude with lunch in the Parkview cafeteria. Just bring yourself, your family and your guests, and enjoy good food and fellowship.
