WALK FOR WATER OCTOBER 7 Walk for Water is one month away on Oct 7. We will need help the day of the walk. There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex for where volunteers are needed and what you can do to help out. If you haven’t signed up for the walk yet there are 2 teams set up or you can make your own. We will be having breakfast items before the walk and lunch after the walk. We will also be giving prizes for the largest team, the team and individual that collects the most money. If you want to order a T-shirt ($10), contact the church office rather than ordering online. The T-shirts will be ordered by Sept 16 and be available to be picked up and paid for the day of the race. Let’s all work together to make this most successful Walk for Water we have sponsored yet!
