Also, there are lists of items needed for relief kits available at the front door. Please bring these items to the church and we will have the opportunity to assemble kits with the other churches of the Southern District later this month.
*A truck will be arriving from MCC this week with materials for 1,400 relief kits to be assembled in Fishersville. More information to come.
