The Parsonage is desperately in need of new paint/stain. So far we have received two bids to paint it—about $4,000 and $9,000. If people were willing to pitch in and do the work ourselves it would be much less. Church Council is asking for donations toward this project and people willing to help do the work. Please contact Pastor Patrick or the church office to help.
Relay for Life Coming on July 12 at Wessman Arena in Superior will be the Relay for Life. Purchase $10 bags from Marion Maki between services on Sundays to honor those who have/or have had cancer. Your help is needed!
