Name Tags Visitors feel like we are a friendly congregation. We open the doors, and say hello, and make an effort to recognize our visitors. Now we can go the extra mile, with name tags, so that our visitors know us as well! We have designed brand new name tags that are much easier to read, and are magnetic so you don’t put holes in your clothes! The cost of a new nametag is only $6 and you can order one for each family member now. You’ll see someone in the Narthex before services or you can contact Vicki in the church office.

Please #1 Make sure your clothing donations are in reasonably good condition. Please #2 when you shop for groceries, remember there are two unseen “guests” who will be dining with you. One is Jesus. The other is a man, woman, or family who will deeply appreciate that they have been given a seat at your table.
