As most of you know, Pastor Cheryl has bought a house in Jarrell. Many of you helped her move from her Georgetown location! Shortly after she closed on her house she had her accident. We have been waiting for her to recover so we could give her a housewarming.
The Housewarming is planned for Sunday, September 15, at 3:00 p.m. in the Commons. As most of you know, when you move into a new home many things are needed. We are sure she would appreciate any gift you would give her! However, if you would like to give a gift card her favorite stores are Target, Ikea, Kohl’s, & Kirklands.
Please make your plans to attend!
