Buy-a-Bag! Make a contribution to our snow removal efforts by buying a bag of salt. You don’t have to actually bring a bag, just drop some extra cash in the salt bag receptacles at each entrance of the church. Your help is greatly appreciated, and we hope to never have this much snow and salt again!
