THERE IS A LARGE PRINT HYMNAL available for the congregation.  It is in a 3-ring binder located on the credence table by the handicap entrance.  If there is a need for more than 1 hymnal at a service, please contact the office.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER GROUP: In addition to praying for the homeless (as well as others), we would like to invite the congregation to work with us on a project! We are doing a Sock Project. Starting this week, we are collecting socks for men at Cherry Street Mission & women at Sparrows Nest. Research has shown that one of the main items asked for by those living in shelters is warm socks. Please join us as we embark on the Sock Project! Bins will be located in the Narthex & elevator lobby. This will be a year-round project.


Keep in your prayers the members of our Call Committee
