 The Military Bulletin 
Board is in progress. 
 We are  honoring our troops and veterans by placing their photos (in full uniform if possible) on a Military Bulletin Board which is located in the Parish Hall. Don't forget to put the name and branch (Army/Navy, etc.) (if deceased Veteran) on the back, and your name and phone number too.  There is a mail slot in the office building where photos can be placed or they can be given to Carol Jane Walker or Mary Boscher.  You can pick up your photo after it's been resized and added to the display - in a box underneath the bulletin board.

The new hymnal, "Lift Every Voice and Sing II", is being added to our pews as a uniquely American, easy-to-sing, collection of gospel and old-time-favorite hymns. We have already received 32 copies of "Lift Every Voice and Sing II" from Al and Louise Fridkis' children.  The labels inside the front cover will dedicate the books in their honor.  If you would like to purchase a hymnal, we are able to order them from Amazon for $15 apiece, which includes tax.  To purchase, simply notify Mary Bendas, our trusted treasurer.  Let her know what you would like written on the inner label.

The need for pillows is ongoing but, by law, these must be new. Linen items can be left with Personal Care items in the first   alcove on the right in the Parish Hall.
