We Would Like To Welcome ...Baby Bottle Campaign for Pregnancy Support Center
Mrs. Angela Mahoney,
Director of Children's Ministries
Thru Father's Day, June 16. Empty baby bottles are available at the church. You can take a bottle and fill it with coins, bills, and checks as a donation to the Pregnancy Support Center. It is amazing at the end of the campaign how quickly those little coins add up and make a big difference for God's ministry. Bottles will be collected at the church on Father's Day and returned to the Pregnancy Support Center.
