thank you
Many thanks to all who helped make our Garage Sale such a big success. Thanks to donors who provided the goods and to the many volunteers who planned, picked up furniture, worked all week sorting our merchandise, and worked the day of the sale right through packing up the leftovers. Our customers were very grateful for the hospitality provided to them and for the opportunity to buy things they needed at very reasonable prices. God bless you all for your serving spirits!

Women Making a Difference
Women Making a Difference
Saturday, April 28 
Women Making a Difference will meet on Saturday, April 28 from 9:00am - noon in Room 101 of the Adult Building. Do you like to knit or crochet? Alzheimer patients love the "fidget" muffs we have been making. These are muffs that fit on the lower arm and have things attached like keys, zippers, etc. We also have "fidget" quilts that need assembling. You can also come and learn about the mats we crochet for the homeless. About 35 have been sent this month to Pastor Moore at Open Air Ministries. There is also a real need to write cards to those who are sick, lost loved ones, or just need a pick me up. Cards have been colored and recycled and are ready to complete with a short message. Join the fun and fellowship as we make a difference in our community. Sponsored by United Methodist Women.
