Sunday School Christmas Program Needs YOU!  The Board of Education is in need of a congregation member to step up and coordinate/ director this years Sunday School Christmas Program. You will have a lot of support from the board. Please speak with Greg Gebhart, Steve Wilcken or Thomas Wilson.

Looking for a way to serve? We need people to serve Sunday morning coffee at 9:45 am in Sept. and Oct. The sheets are posted on the bulletin board.

We have contacted Food at First, a place where people who are short of funds may get a free meal every day. We will take a group there on Thursday, September 26 and need a few more to work at 5:30. If you would like to join us, please sign up on the sheet on the bulletin board. We will be serving and cleaning up. Probably about 2 hours and wear anything but make sure you have comfortable shoes.

God has given us the greatest gift of all, His Son, our Savior. Would you like to give the gift of flowers? The 2019 Flower Chart is posted on the bulletin board.
