Hurricane Harvey Relief

Pastor John will be hosting a picnic in the backyard of Christ’s Workshop on Saturday, September 30, from 4:30-7:30pm, as a Thrivent Action Team project.  Bring a chair, maybe a side dish, and a donation to help with Hurricane Harvey relief.  All checks should be made out to: “Texas District Relief”.  100% of these funds will go to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Come join Pastor John for some food and fellowship on the 30th and let’s help those who are hurting.
