Weekly Update

Hello Everyone . . . we have so many delightful things coming up, I won't say much so that you can have a chance to get to the bottom of this email! Thanks to everyone who responded last week, our April 3 Fundraising Celebration is coming along nicely. The most important thing to do now is to get the word out. Please download, print and post this flier in at least 3 places! You can do it! Invite a friend to come with you that night! We will have fun as we Stand on the Side of Love!

While we are standing on the side of love, make sure you make one of the many events commemorating the Bosnian Resettlement. Go and try to make at least on new friend! (Sending this on Thursday night, to give you an extra boost to attend.)

See you in church! 
(yes, while you are at it, bring or make a new friend there too!)
