This year we have chosen to bless April Kessler's family.
Her daughter, Casey Wall attended many of our church events.
We will be collecting an offering this Sunday,
please give as you are able in the basket in the foyer
or to Donna or Linda.

If you are unable to give on Nov 29,
then feel free to drop off your donation
to the church or parsonage during the week.
Pastor and Linda will take the gift to the family
on Dec 6 after we have received all donations.

SPECIAL MUSIC
    Beginning the Sunday after Thanksgiving, we will focus on Advent and the celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We hope to share some special Christmas music with the church family during that time. If you would like to volunteer to present something special, please talk to Pastor Marty.
