This week’s edition of FN3
As the Christmas season approaches, it is easy for us to get caught up in our lists of “to do’s.” Often in the busyness of life, we forget those who have impacted the lives of our families and children the most. We all have the opportunity to show how much Pastor & Mrs. Scott mean to us in this COVID-19 season through our Pastor’s Gift at Christmas Drive-Thru on Dec. 20 from noon-1 p.m. For those unable to participate in the drive-thru, gifts may be mailed or dropped off at the church office now through Dec. 18. We look forward to seeing all of you!
