April Short Notes

Could you use some help?

You can help YouthWorks missioners with their trip expense by hiring them to do work around your house or yard.  Some of the tasks they are willing to do include raking, mowing, washing windows, baby-sitting, and dog walking. “We Can Help” sheets are in the upper and lower narthex as well as the church office.  Please make your own arrangements with the willing workers.  Your payment for their services will be directed to their mission account.
