Flourish in Faith II
All members should have received a Flourish in Faith II pledge card and letter from FiFII Chairman Eric Bertolotti in the mail last week. Please refer to Eric’s letter for helpful info about how to fill out and turn in your pledge cards (November 8th), and please do not hesitate to call the church office if you have any further questions.
