Winter Warmer Italian Dinner

On Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 6:00 pm we’re having a “Winter Warmer” dinner, hosted by the Board of Christian Education and the Sunday School children, who will use the proceeds generated from the dinner to purchase food for the Bradford Food Shelf.

Join us for this fun, relaxing, and cozy Italian-inspired meal. A $10 per person donation is suggested.

Please contact Angela Conrad-Schlager (222-9275) with any questions.

Book Angels

Want to be a Book Angel for the Sunday School library? There are 3 categories of $5, $10 and $15. Pick a book you’d like to sponsor and you will be that book’s Book Angel!

A huge THANK YOU to all the folks who participated in the Book Angels project on Valentine’s Day.  Together we provided more than 20 new books to begin a children’s Sunday School library. More books will be available for purchase at the Christian Education’s Winter Warmer Dinner on February 20th.
