Lost & Found
We are finally coming into warmer weather but we can’t move on until your coats and jackets are retrieved from the Lost & Found and put away for next winter. On Sunday ALL of our current Lost & Found tubs will be on display in the kitchen. Please come to look for your belongings, plus dishes left from numerous potlucks and events. Next stop for the stuff is the thrift store, so think about that missing coat and don’t delay in claiming it. Please see Debbie Stevenson to claim lost jewelry, or parts of jewelry, watches, keys and pocket knives.

Benevolence Fund
We maintain a non-budget fund to provide financial assistance within our congregation and in the community. The fund needs replenishing. Please help by writing “benevolence fund” on your check or in online giving, by clicking on that fund and designating an amount.

Our missionary in Bolivia, Joe Holman asked us some difficult questions, starting with “Are you really following Christ?” “Do you listen, talk and respond to Him daily?” “Is He a priority in your life…unless you have something else to do?” Listen and download Joe’s thought-provoking message
