Serving our Neighbors (S.O.N.)
It’s cold outside, but within our church there is a warm feeling as we collect hats, gloves/mittens and scarves for men, women and children of all ages. During the month of January, we will continue to collect these items and give out at our February 5th Midweek evening. What a great way to warm the hearts of our neighbors!
