Dear Church Family – I wanted to thank all who have helped me through this medical journey I am on. Your cards, calls, visits, errands and food have been so appreciated and I look forward to being with you as soon as possible. My hip replacement is now scheduled for June/July timeframe. As soon as I am more mobile after the surgery I look forward to worshipping with you in person again. All of you are missed and loved by me and I am anxious to be back with you. Love, Beverly Landes

Auditorium Angels — If you would like to be an auditorium angel, please sign the list on the foyer bulletin board in the Office Wing. “What is an Auditorium Angel you ask?” An Auditorium Angel is a person who, once a week, checks the auditorium for paper laying on the pews and, on the floor, puts the cushions back in the basket, replaces attendance cards and straightens the Bibles and song books in the racks. It only takes a few minutes a week and makes a nicer, neater place to worship.
NOTE: When you are wanting to use the building or the church van, please check the calendar in the work area in the Office Wing to see if anyone else has them scheduled.
Anyone interested in getting their CDL and driving the church bus to events and activities, please see Mark Mokry.
