A time to say Thank You

At next week’s service (April 15) we’ll be inviting you to write a short thank you/appreciation note to someone in our congregation on forms that are provided.   For example, someone who does something “just because” they see it needs to be done, or someone who has prayed for you or challenged you, or teaches, or calls when you are sick, or ???

These notes will be collected April 15th during offering time and will be given to the individuals the following week.  Please feel free to take as many forms as you need.
