We’re inviting people to contribute baked goods to our Christmas Festival this Saturday!

If you can drop off cookies, pies, breads, or any other tasty treat for our bake sale, that would be wonderful. We will use the proceeds to support our missions partners - such as Country Doc, Afghan immigrants, UMCOR, and more. Please drop off any contributions this Friday during the day (9:00-3:00) or Saturday before the festival (12:30-2:00).

Thank you and blessings,
