MISSIONARY FUND UPDATE
So far in 2018 we have enjoyed a delicious Pancake Breakfast and a special Valentine’s Dinner.  Proceeds from both events went to support our three missionary families: the Stotlers in South Africa; the Haddens in South Dakota; and the Houles who are preparing to serve in Thailand. 

Because of your generous participation and support of these two events, we collected enough money to pay our quarterly pledge for two of these families. We will continue to have fundraisers, and we appreciate any and ALL other donations.  Look for the Wishing Well!
