Evangelism 101:
77 percent of those individuals who come to church and make a commitment to Jesus Christ do so because of personal contact with a friend or family member.

Food Pantry Donations:
We are still collecting canned goods and non perishables for the Food Pantry on Sundays in March. Please put these items on the collection table in the Parish Hall.

We are also in great need of postcard and first class stamps. Please put all stamp donations in the collection plate or give them directly to Father Perschall or Vicki Beeler.

Harvest Unlimited:
Many parishioners would love to invite to their church folks from their neighborhood, but they don't know them. They know that many have no church home, but they don't know how to invite people they have never met. To solve this problem, Harvest Unlimited is helping a number of parishes and mission stations in our diocese set up "call centers" from which members can call neighbors and ask them how they might pray for their needs. Then, they invite them to a "Harvest Sunday." The Harvest Unlimited Program is in full swing! Please consider getting involved in this program as our church reaches out to our community and neighbors. Please contact Father Perschall, Vicki Beeler or Ralph Fields.

Extra church newsletters & Women's "Hot Flashes" newsletters are in the Parish Hall. Please make sure to update the church on any address changes to ensure you get your newsletter in a timely manner. If you would like to assist in the production and mailing of our monthly newsletter please contact Jennifer Mason or Father Perschall.
