2022 Offering Envelopes
If you have not picked up your offering envelopes for this year, they are available on The Welcome Desk in the Gathering Place.  If you would like a set, but do not find your name on a box, take a blank box & sign the paper with box # taken.  If you would like us to drop off your box, give the church office a call. 

Photo Directories
If you ordered a printed copy of our new photo directory and have not yet picked it up, please stop by the church office during the week or on Sunday to retrieve your copy. We have extras if you did not sign up in advance, please just list your name so we know if we need to print additional copies. There is a suggested $2 donation to recover copier and paper expenses.
