Lost and Found-This month we will pull out all the items that have been stranded in the lost and found. On May 19 they will be on display in Gordon Hall and waiting to be claimed. Please check the pile for items you are missing. There are several sets of keys and glasses. Items that are not claimed will be donated to a local shelter.
Gainesville Community Ministry is always in need of food and financial resources. At this time, they are in desperate need of all types of nonperishable foods. Please check the Publix Buy One Get One special this week. When shopping the BOGO at Publix, you can use 2 coupons even though you are only paying for one item. Thank you to all who have helped to Meet Human Needs. Please remember that the need is great year round.
