 The Wednesday Morning Work Group hasn't met in a while as our custodian has done such an excellent job of keeping our building in shape.  With a new Pastor coming soon we thought it would be a good idea to do some spring cleaning in our building (and outside when the weather gets warmer).  To start, we will meet on Wednesday, March 21st and March 28th at 9:30 am (we work until noon).  New members are always welcome to work around the building with us, enjoy fellowship and we always have coffee and treats.  Please see Bud or Cindy Lage with any questions.
