IT’S ALMOST MAGIC! – Plastic bottles and soda and beer bottles have been turned into support for education ($130 so far). Just remove the caps from plastic bottles, bring them and soda/beer bottles to the church and place them in the blue bin in the kitchen. We are looking for someone to redeem these containers at a recycling facility. If you can help, please contact Rev. McNamara.


If you cannot spare the time to prepare goodies for our hospitality time after worship, please consider making a donation to the green “Hospitality Donation Box”
located at the hospitality table. Donating will help fill the void dates and lessen the burden on members who regularly prepare goodies.
