NEW THIS WEEK!
TODAY IS HEIFER PROJECT SUNDAY
Heifer’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the earth. By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, we empower them to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self reliance and hope. A special collection is taken the fourth Sunday of every month (including today).
NEXT SUNDAY IS NEIGHBOR HELPING NEIGHBOR
A special collection is taken the first Sunday of every month. These funds go through KAMA to help community needs.
MEALS ON WHEELS
We are still in need of individuals to deliver Meals on Wheels for Week 3 (October 4-8). Please sign up!
If you or a family member are in the hospital, please notify our church office so pastoral visits can be made as that information may not be released to the pastors otherwise due to the new health information guidelines.
