Change-the-World-LogoDay of Service

Saturday, July 25, 2015

Put your faith into action!  Our all-church Day of Service will be held on Saturday, July 25.  Come to the Fellowship Hall at 1:30 pm to carpool to the Food Bank and to “Change the World” into a better place.  (In the process, you’ll be changing yourself as well, as your heart is warmed by the experience of  serving your neighbor.) If you would like to go directly to the Food Bank sorting is from 2:00-4:00 pm. Contact the church office for more information.
