Two Future Events in 2018:

~ Peace has booked dates for our next Pictorial Directory for May 3-5, 2018. Can you believe it’s already been three years this month since we did the last one? So many changes since then!

~Liberty Quartet will be with us again for a beautiful morning of worship and songs. We have booked them for June 3, at 10 am. We only need to provide two hotel rooms and lunch after the service. Let the church office know if you would like to support those needs!

Copies of the November newsletter and calendar can be found in the holder on the table in the fellowship hall.

Updated PLC Directories are also available in the holder & update monthly – grab a new one when you’re here!
