We are going to wipe down the doors, light switches, pews and other areas in the Church to rid the building of germs. We do not like those pesky germs that give others the cold and flu, so to help our congregation stay healthy- we are going to clean! All ages welcome! Surprisingly, kids love to clean for someone else! A snack will be provided too. Come anytime between 12:30 and 2pm.
