will take turns in leading the classes. Come and be informed about your church and
what it teaches. Gathering time is 9:00 a.m.

helping to support this ministry.
We have several ministries that we hope to implement before 2016. In order to do so, we
need financial support. If you have not paid your dues for 2015 please do so as soon as you
are able. Thank you Gloria Belton, ECW Treasurer.
