Honor Thy Mother

Mother's Day is May 8th! Honor thy Mother this year with a donation of a NEWLY PURCHASED Robe, Slippers, and/or Nightgown to the Mission Team's Mother’s Day project.  These items will be collected in a box placed in the hallway near the Mission bulletin board and hand-delivered to Coburn Place Safe Haven (a shelter for women and children who have been victims of domestic violence).  Here is a chance to show your Mother and our neighbors in need some love.  Thank you for donating.

starting around 7 pm.
