High School Senior Blessing, today we will be recognizing our high school seniors: Ellory Ferris, Laura Johnson, Sierra Smith, Tyler Ragland and Kiley Johnson. They will be given quilts lovingly made by our quilting ladies and we’ll have a prayer of blessing over them. As usual, Pastor Dennis will do his 15 second interview with each graduate, so they can share with us their future plans. We’ll have a cake in their honor after worship and an opportunity to visit with them then.

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Gideons last Sunday. The amount collected was $230.
