Hanging in There Together
As we move through the month of May and the hope of one day again being able to take our place in our favorite seat on our favorite row, singing, praying and communing with our Lord, let’s keep an eye on one another. Many of us long to get back, while others have developed habits and plans that might keep us from ever darkening the church house doors.
We need to check on one another. We have some who are willing to help if you are having some challenges, particularly financial do to layoff and furloughs. Call or send us a note, text, maybe an email if you need some help.
Lastly, thanks so much for remembering our church. We have been able to operate here and pay the bills. There are several options, like mail a check, online bill pay at your banking institution or stop by the office. Call to make sure we are here. We have a donation link on our website. Check it out.
