Summer vacations are here! Some of our fellowship is taking us away from home. When this happens our tithes and contributions fall off considerably. We do not want this to create a hardship in meeting our financial obligations. Our stewardship committe encourages you to be faithful in your commitments when you are away. Kindly consider bringing or mailing your financial gifts to the church office. May God's blessings be abundant to us all to continue doing his will. Thank You, Dianne Uzzell Chairperson
