Submit that completed form to the shepherds by September 4th.

Building Project:  Things are progressing quickly in our building project. Many of the items previously listed have been accounted for through your private donations. A final report will be presented at the end of the project. A new pew is at the end of our fellowship hall.

Please mark and give the funds to one of the shepherds.   —Thank You
