On December 13, you are invited to join us at the home of longtime members Buddy and Barbara Young to help them rake their leaves. Bring your own rake (or leaf blower). Come at 9:00am – many hands will make quick work to rake and bag. It’s a great opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ while showing the right way to care within the body of Christ. The Young’s live very close to the church. See the church announcement for more details. Contact Kevin Freeman with any questions.
