Some have asked if aluminum can recycling will continue now and the answer is yes. Aaron says that he will be responsible to make sure it gets done. So you may continue to bring your cans in to the church like you always have. (To the small room next to the pop machine in the hallway outside of the Fellowship Hall.)



If you move or change your phone number or email address, please contact us at the church office so we can make the changes to the church directory and database. (Call 275-6111 or email Thank you!  Mary
