For the past twenty years, the church has been blessed by the faithful service of Ruth
DuCharme, Minister to Children and Carol Brown, Director of Preschool Ministries. To celebrate their twenty years of ministry, the church invites you to a reception in their honor following the morning services on Sunday, September 20. We ask that you help us mark the day as a surprise.

As with recognition of other longtime employees of the church, we are asking for a special love offering for Ruth and Carol. All monies contributed to this love offering should be received before Wednesday, September 16. Please give this offering as your heart leads you.

During the reception, we will present each of them with a love offering and a collection of shared memories. Ruth and Carol have both nurtured our family tree. If you, your children, or grandchildren have been touched in some way by their ministry, we need your help to make this day special. Please come and be a part of this celebration.
