SNOW REMOVAL   With the winter weather fast approaching, we are preparing the weekend snow removal schedule for the churches sidewalks and parking lots.  If you are an able-bodied individual who can help the church meet this need, “PLEASE” pick up a sign-up sheet on the Cry Room shelf and mark the weekends you would be available to help and return it to the Church of by October 4th or call the Church Office at 342-1700.  You may also place the form in the Offertory Baskets.  More volunteers are needed so that the few volunteers, that we do have, won’t have to cover as many weekends.  Thank you.
