THANK YOU!
We would like to thank all of you for your faithful stewardship the first 9 months of 2020.  Confronting the Covid-19 virus has confronted all of us with many changes, but you have been very gracious in your stewardship either by putting your offerings in the plate on Sunday morning, giving as you come to drive thru communion, or mailing / dropping off your contribution to church.   Thank you all very much!

BEWARE OF SCAMS!!
Some of you have received fraudulent texts this last week, that were signed “Pastor Richard Hutton.”  These were not from Pastor Dick.
Please be very careful when receiving texts and emails before responding.  It is important for us to know from where and from whom our messages come.  We are living in a time when people are seeking to abuse our freedom to communicate with one another.  So, when you get a text or email, please make sure you know from whom and from where it has come. If you have questions, feel free to check Pastor’s telephone number and email address in the bulletin.

THE BREAKFAST GALS BASEMENT SALE HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING.   PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY MORE DONATIONS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!!
