We will continue our monthly ADOPT-A-PEW march the third Sunday of each month (excluding March and June as a result of Women's and Men's/Father's Day). This is an attempt to lessen the possible stress of reaching the requested goal of $100 per member by Homecoming. The ADOPT-A-PEW RALLY is an effort to help achieve our Annual Budget. Envelopes for this march are in the back of the church pews. If you need additional envelopes, please contact an usher. You may continue to use the Homecoming envelope included with your regular envelopes, if you desire.
