Contact: Kelli Ritter

The Baby Bottle Blessing, to raise money for MPS, began last week. If you didn’t already, take a baby bottle today and bring it back on Feb 8, filled with change, cash, or a check made out to MPS (a few coins helps them realize there is a check in the bottle.) Help provide services that save the lives of unborn children.

Note of thanks

We would like to thank our church family for all their expressions of love and care for us. Thank you in particular to those who braved the cold and built the ramp at our home. Thank you for all the cards and well wishes that we have received from you and all those prayers that have offered up on our behalf. May God bless each of you for the encouragement you have been to us. -  Dick and Fran
