A ‘Building Use Calendar’ is becoming more helpful as there are activities beyond regular church programs.  Be sure to consult the calendar on the Church Bulletin Board before planning an event.  Piano lessons, family gatherings and blood drives are examples of ‘extra’ activities.  Writing in your event makes a reservation—remembering that funerals or other unforeseen church activities will have priority.

Birthdays & Anniversaries December 3 thru December 9:
Fiona Amstutz-Dec 3; Kari Jones-Dec 3; Donnie & Rhonda Miller-Dec 9;
