Loaves & Fishes January 2020
With a new year and a new decade, we are introducing Honor gifts for Loaves & Fishes. It is now possible to give a gift to honor someone which, in turn, will change a life through our Loaves & Fishes program. Your honoree will receive a card letting them know that they have been honored in this way and they will be named in the church newsletter for the next month. On the website, you can designate the honoree’s name in the “memo” and leave a note with the address for the honor card. Alternatively, you can deliver an envelope to the church office with the gift and the honoree’s name and address.
Sharon Smith & James Lipman donated in honor of: 1) Mary Smith 2) Susan (Smith), Denny & Ashly Eubanks
