Food Pantry Needs

The April collection item for the food pantry is dish soap.
Thank you for any and all of the goods that you bring to help those who can use a little boost.

Donations may be dropped off in the grocery cart and will be taken to the pantry. Thank you.

Our church bank ( TD ) would really appreciate it if folks would write their church checks with blue or black ball point pens. The check processing machine doesn’t do well with pretty purples and reds.

Informal Evaluation
Please talk with Butch, Kristi, or Jeanne if you have anything to offer to the informal evaluation of our minister. You are welcome to write it out or speak to one of the above. Contract talks will follow at some point. We are looking to a late April meeting with Rev. Nancy White to start the process. But your input matters.
