STILL IN NEED
SUNRISE MISSION NEEDS WARM OUTERWEAR

Because we had warmer than usual weather this Fall, the Sunrise Mission didn’t get the usual amount of hats, gloves, scarves and warm socks. They are in dire need of these items and would like them to be NEW. There is a tub in the narthex where they can be put. Thank You! – Care and Outreach Team

THANK YOU
A big thank you for all of the love and support sent my way during my recent surgery and this time of healing. The flowers and fruit basket, cards and meals are so deeply appreciated. Blessings, Anna Kollien

THANK YOU
Thank you so much for thinking of us and for the beautiful arrangements. We appreciate it so much.
From the family of Ronald Morley, Jr.
