Items to be left in main storage areas should be clearly marked with either owner’s name or the ministry’s name. Treasure Fest will take place on the following Sundays (7/29, 8/1 & 8/8) where everyone will have a chance to go through the unwanted items!

Did you happen to see that we updated the projector?  Wow!  Well now we’re in need of a few more projector techs to help run the
