Take a brick, do a chore- If you are able and have time, there are a number of odd jobs that need to be done around the church. Keeping with our Stewardship Campaign’s theme, Building God’s Kingdom Together, we’ve created a brick wall. Each brick is a task that needs to be done. The wall is on display in the church foyer.
