All members of the congregation are needed. We have many tasks/jobs that need to be filled, from traffic control, to babysitting, to cooking and serving meals. We will also need help prior to the day of the dinner, if you can’t sign up for the day we can still use your help. Looking forward to working with everyone.

If you have questions or suggestions, please contact Robin Hirsch or Kris Woolley.

Please Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful!

I would like our church to be able to say this to all who see it. To that end I am going to create a Garden Club. This will be a group of people who can spend some time, maybe once a month helping to beautify the church grounds. Some of you already do things for the church and would be perfect for the group. Others who have a green thumb, or just a strong back, would be welcomed. The more we get, the better our church will look.

Please contact Gene Ashe 301-606-7761 or gfashe@comcast.net if interested.

And before you ask, here are the FAQs:

No, we will not be planting vegetables.

Yes, will be buying some perennials in the fall, and some annuals in the spring to spruce up the place.
