From our Church Secretary:

Dear Fellow Parishioners,

     It’s hard to believe we’re already going into April. But time flies, and here we are, right up to the day we’ve picked to clean up our church and ready it for Easter. This coming Saturday, bring a rag or two and anything else you think might help us to get our building in good shape. We’ll start at 10:00 a.m. and with many hands making light work, it won’t be long before we’ve got things clean and shiny.

     The very next day, Sunday, after our service, participate in our first quarterly meeting. We’ll be discussing the very important subject of finances, so you don’t want to miss it. Come and help us with your ideas and suggestions.

Faithfully yours,      

Mrs. Marion Blau
