Reminder Pledge Sunday is Oct. 21. Your pledge (no matter the size) really does make a difference.
In case you were not in church last week the Bylaws revision passed overwhelmingly. Watch for implementation details to come soon. If you have a specific area in which you would like to serve please see chairperson of the appropriate committee to let them know. You really are welcome to join.
