COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RELIEF ROOM
We are now accepting donations of small furniture items. Things such as dressers, dinette sets, coffee tables, end tables, bed frames, children desks book cases, etc. At this time we are not accepting bulky things such as couches, love seats, and recliners, but we would like to know of anything of this nature that might be available. No mattresses. At times we may need to pick these items up from the donor. With that in mind, we are looking for individuals who may have a pickup truck and would be willing, on occasion, to assist with such pickups. If you would be willing to be involved in this ministry in this manner, please contact Dana Mollenkopf at 765-277-0287 or papamole@comcast.net.

Do you have an upcoming surgery? know someone who has been in the hospital? Let us know! In the past Reid would let us know when a member was ill but they no longer do so.

If you or someone you know is ever in need of a visit please contact the church office at 765-962-8543 or call Pastor Joseph’s personal cell phone at 765-277-0682
