We now have the opportunity to be able to recycle our shredded paper. It will have to be put in paper bags, not plastic. If you have a surplus of large paper bags (grocery size or larger), please consider donating them to the church so we can be even more GREEN!
If you are planning to attend Nancy Ratnour’s Memorial Service, please consider bring something reflective of Nancy with which to decorate the alter space.
