A Word From Our Treasurer
During this period of quarantine, we have reminded you of the importance of keeping up with your pledge to the church … and you have responded admirably! So much so that in May we A.L.M.O.S.T. broke even, which is wonderful news. Thank you for all you have done!
But now for the bad news! June hit us like a ton of bricks with two large bills for insurance and payroll taxes which came due, with a second installment of taxes due again in July.
So the battle is not over. Please remember to send in your pledges on a regular basis. We are still an active, on-going church, trying to meet the needs of our members; and our church leaders are doing a phenomenal job in that regard. For instance, we may be closed but we still celebrate Communion and we are conducting VBS as usual. But such growth and service are only possible with your continued support.
Thank you for all you continue to do.
Thom Hinks, Treasurer

While We Are Away
Mike and Kathy Thayer and Aloy and Marv Bamberg having been working each week on our grounds. Clearing brush, cleaning up the landscaping, and maintaining weed control are among the things they are doing. In addition, they are cleaning and landscaping the strip of land just south of our parking lot. It is looking wonderful! Many thanks for their hard work and dedication to this ministry.
