Also, this Sunday we will collect a Special offering for our UCC Neighbors In Need (NIN) fund that is focused on providing clean water around the world, this year.

Special Offering for Neighbors In Need

We will be sharing in this special offering on Sunday. I thought you might like to talk with your children about it before Sunday. We hope your week has started out well. You are in our prayers.
