After much discussion and prayer, Beth Halliday and I are closing the Healing Ministry. We have been so blessed by the support and love of our congregation, allowing us to use the sanctuary each Wednesday to offer this natural healing system called Reiki. We have emptied the cupboards that have been designated for storage of our tables, linen, etc. We plan to sell our equipment and donate the money to Trinity in thanks for all the support over the years.

If you are doing a Spring clean-up …
at your house and could donate any 500 ml Mason Jars for the upcoming Chili Sauce making in September, it would be very much appreciated. Please just put the jars on the counter in the church kitchen and I will periodically pick them up.
Many thanks, Olive Macoomb
