LABELS, LABELS, LABELS…. Thank you all who have saved their Hy-Vee and Country Fare. Keep them coming. The label cutters, however, ask that you bring in the whole label and leave the cutting up to them. There have been some changes in what we need to save and we have had to throw away a number of the labels because they did not meet the rules. Thanks for your cooperation.
Reminder…for when a friend or family member goes into the hospital. Please call the church office. The hospital does not call the church (except in extreme situations). Please let the Pastor know also of upcoming surgeries, or hospital stays.
