“Not the Turkey Supper” Supper Success!
A great big thank you to all who came out to the “Not the Turkey Supper” supper on Saturday.  It was a beautiful day and we thank you so much for your support for our church.

Many thanks as well to the organizers.  It was a great event!

Outreach Materials Collection on Pause

There is currently a pause on some of our Outreach Activities due to COVID-19.  Until further notice we will not be collecting the milk bags, or any items for shelters.  Hopefully this will be a temporary situation and we can take part in these ventures in the future. Thanks for all your efforts always.
