Good Afternoon,

If you didn’t see my earlier message our Conference Disaster Relief Team, in response to the recent storms here in Georgia, is asking for donations of blankets. If you have any donations please bring them by the office and I will deliver them where they need to go.

Leigh Law is scheduled for surgery tomorrow so please keep her and her doctors in your prayers. I will try to keep you updated when I have information to share.

We have a special musical guest coming to lead worship on the 29th and we’ll have a covered dish meal in the Social Hall following the service. We will be asking for a love offering to help offset our guest’s expenses for the day.
