MINISTER APPRECIATION SUNDAY
The Worship Department is seeking monetary donations towards Minister Appreciation Month. If you would like to contribute, please see Chris Miller. We will also be visiting the Sunday School classrooms this Sunday to get the word out. If you would like to give a “gift in kind” please be sure to designate it as such in your offering.
Betty Martin’s children (Jackie, Kathy and Bill) are asking that we participate in a card shower for Betty in honor of her 90th birthday, on October 18th. They also suggest you might share a photo to help her put names with faces, since she is struggling with dementia.

They also shared how much contact from the church has meant to Betty.
She looks forward to the postal worker each day!
