Transportation Ministry - There are a few dear folks in our church who are no longer able to drive themselves to and from church.  In order to bring them to worship with us, there is a group of us who sign up to volunteer for a once a month "duty" to bring them to church for the 10:15 service and take them home.  Our committee is growing smaller and we are needing more volunteers.  Please consider help out with this important ministry for our aging folks! Contact Marcia Younger at

InReach Program at COT – In our Apr. Newsletter, we talked about starting an organized structure for caring for people in our community by assisting with meals and other short-term needs. There are two ways you can help – one is to be on the email list that will go out for an identified need and two, you can sign up on Sign up Genius to help. Contact Pat Magerkurth, Georgine Mccarthy, or Kit Snyder  to let them know of people who need an extra hand.
