It is very important that we can hand out the reports before hand, in order that parishioners can review the reports before the annual meeting.
We have an online Calendar that you can go to our website and see what is going on at the church. Remember, if you have an event you want to add, email Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday Evening so she can update the calendar on Saturdays. If you would like a print out instead, just let us know and we can print one out for you!
Gift Cards: Thanks to Deb for continuing this roof fundraiser for us! Watch for notice for the next one At the PC meeting, we were told that we only have approximately $5,000.00 left to pay back! Great Job everyone!
