A big thank you to all who volunteered for the bomber game on June 24, 2022 through the rain and thunder and lightening! We have enough volunteers for July 15. We are still looking for volunteers August 25, September 10 and 30 and October 8 and 28. 

The Fellowship Committee is looking for a volunteer coordinator for funeral luncheons. The coordinator will: communicate with family to decide on the type of lunch they wish to have served and the costs involved (options are in the brochure); call upon volunteers (from list provided) to help set up before hand, serve during, and clean up following the luncheon; order and arrange for the food to be brought to the church; submit all bills to the office for reimbursement and notify the office of the cost to the family for invoicing. Please call the office or be in touch with Ruth Graham (204-269-0274 – you can leave a message) or Irma if you are interested.
