Week of April 18, 2018

A huge THANK YOU your participation in Mission Possible "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" last Saturday!  It was such a great success because you were the hands and feet of Jesus and helped our neighbors.  We have heard awesome comments about how hard all of you worked and how much it was appreciated!

Saturday morning went very smoothly because YOU "signed up"...thank you.... so we were able to place you on a team earlier in the week and we did not waste any time having to place folks on a team that morning....or hold up any teams from hitting the mission field at 8:00. A big SHOUT OUT for signing up early!!

Such a great team of all ages either working in our local mission field or providing such a great breakfast for awesome that was! 


May God Bless You,
Toni Gant
