We will be having a noon fellowship meal on March 26, followed by a Congregational Business Meeting. It would be appreciated if each family bring a main dish (consider using a crock-pot) and either a salad, dessert or bread. Please bring enough food for your family and guests too. Be sure to label all of your dishes and lids. You are also invited to bring your own plates/trays and cups if possible. This practices better Creation Care, as well as saves money on paper products.
