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.
