GLEANER CANS – Change In Deadline

We have received word that the deadline for returning the Gleaner Cans in which several have been saving their loose change and paper money for the past few months to help support the children who live at Potter Children’s Home has been extended to Sunday, Dec. 2.   We’ll have more time to save more for the children.


In a world filled with moral confusion, how can we determine right from wrong? Why do Christians appeal to the Bible as a basis for morality? Can every man do what is right in his own eyes?  Those and other questions will be considered in Phil Sanders’ sermon, “Morality,” next week.  The nationally televised program can be viewed  every Sunday at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
