Take-Out For Guatemala
This year we will be again be doing the "Take-Out for Guatamala" campaign. You can pick up your Take-Out box in the back of the church and fill it with change or cash throughout Lent. All proceeds will go to our Guatemala mission. Please turn your boxes in by Holy Thursday on April 13th.
Want to give up complaining? Pick up a purple bracelet in the back of the church, and every time you complain, switch the bracelet to your other wrist. Scientists say it takes 21 days to form a new habit, and we have 40!
