DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A BANNER?
The first gathering will be for 10 minutes after church August 13.
The Worship Ministry is recruiting a Banner Building Crew to construct a new banner or two for our sanctuary. If you can sew, have ever constructed a banner, quilt or other similar project, you can be part of this. With a little cooperation, we can create something wonderful. A few ideas have been mentioned, but the crew is going to decide the actual project we will start with. The first gathering will be for 10 minutes after church August 13. If you have any questions, suggestions or just want to participate, please contact Kathy Glass at email@example.com or 916-838-5335.
SAVE THE DATE!
