The deacons want to thank the congregation for your response to the need for funding the Christian Education Assistance Fund. Your gifts of $12,641 for July brought the total received for the past school year commitment to $110,000 or 80% of the way. We still have a balance of $27,700 and ask that you prayerfully consider your giving to the Fund during the month of August. If everyone can give a little and some can give a lot then we can make our goal. Thank you for your support of Christian Education!
Congratulations to Zach and Deb Blacquire (5) in the birth of a daughter, Mya Jane, on Friday, November 5.
Congratulations to Jeff and Jessica Hekman (13) in the birth of a son, William Christian, on Monday, November 8.
