Thank You
Thank you to Stephanie, Judy and other volunteers who graciously decorated our church for Christmas as we celebrate the joyous season of our Savior's birth.

Thank You
I want to thank all of you, my friends, family and church family during Richard's illness and death. There are not enough words to convey about how I feel about all of you. I plan to be with you today and will be able to show you how much I think of you. Thank you again for all you have done for me. God Bless You!-Barbara Clement
