Mowing? Yes, Spring is coming soon, the blossoms will bloom, leaves will start forming on trees and the grass will start growing.  The church yard is mowed by volunteer members of the congregation.  One volunteer does two mowings then the job rotates to the next volunteer. We need volunteers to help mow, using the church mower.  Please contact Joe Homan or Ron Strouse if you would like to help.
