Heads up to the August 18th Church Council meeting. If you have any thing you may wish to bring to the council’s attention there are at least two or three ways to do it. Anyone can and would be so welcome to attend the meetings and speak to your issue, or you can let the moderator know about it and it could go on the written agenda, or you could write a note to the council and we’d take it from there. Your participation is so welcome.

We continue to be thankful for all your support and donations. It truly is a community pantry.
