Our Christmas Shopping Spree will be begin at 3:00pm this Saturday, 12-16. We will meet in the Mercedy Center, make our plan, and shop for our four kids.
Our annual Youth Christmas Party will be Sunday night at 6:30pm in the Mercedy Center. Pizza and snacks will be served. Bring a friend and join the fun. Our college kids will be on their mission trip, but any still remaining in town are more than welcome to join us.
We recently loaned out our recliner in the Youth Room to someone recovering from a major surgery. If anyone has a spare rocker/recliner that needs a good home, let me know. Thanks!!
