LAURENT PROJECT – A project in honor of Laurent Lafargue, is a mission for homeless people starting to get back on their feet.  The mission aims to provide furniture items as well as any gently used items that you use in your house that others might need.  From book shelves to sheets we are asking for near about anything. 

FROM THE PASTOR- Reverend Donakey is always available for an appointment and can be reached by calling Debi in the church office.  This is the preferred way to set up a time to meet.  Also, unless meetings and needs of members arise Reverend Donakey is in the office from 9:30 am to noon on Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s, and Thursday’s.  You are encouraged to empower Reverend Donakey by letting him know when needs arise in your life.  “It is a great joy to be able to encourage you, to pray with you, and to be present to you as your pastor.”

FOOD PANTRY – The food pantry item for the month of October is Oatmeal and Grits.

FLOWER CALENDAR – The 2018 Altar Flowers Calendar has been hung on the bulletin board across the Parlor.  Be sure to stop by and sign up for your Sunday to put flowers on the altar in honor or in memory of someone or something before the calendar fills up.  Contact Debi in the church office with any questions.
