BULLETIN“My words come from an upright heart; my lips sincerely speak what I know.” - Job 33:3
We are raising money for the Agape Conference in India and doing a local outreach to George Middle School. There is a list in your bulletin of supplies that we plan to provide for families at the school. You can help in several ways: 1) Buy items—check them off on the chart in the foyer—please bring them to the church by this Wednesday; 2) Donate money to purchase supplies; 3) Help with shopping with the donated money when we know what is still needed—talk to Sara if you are interested; and 4) Put together baskets next Sunday, December 17, after the morning service.
We are updating our church directory. Please put a check beside your name in the directory in the foyer or update your information.
