I would like to extend a big blessing from 2017 that truly stands out in my mind… Members were asked to donate to Faith United Methodist Church in Orange. $3,000.00 was donated!!! Thanks to everyone for your help with the Missions Committee. We have had a wonderful year, and God has blessed our program with so much support. It has been such a blessing to be your chairperson for the last several years. You have all made this program such a success.
