There will be a time of remembrance for those lost in the past year, and communion.
We will also have an ingathering in support of Ruth M. Smith Center. You can see their list of needs at www.ruthmsmithcenter.org/support

Some items we especially need are: Men's deodorant, men's shampoo, and toothpaste.
“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
