VERNON CLERGY FUND NEEDS OUR HELP!
Immediate help is needed for area families to help with bills. We were
contacted by Pastor Nik Fontana of McAfee Bible Church, who is in
charge of distributing funds to the families. As an alternative
to giving aid to others through our food pantry, please also consider
donating to the Vernon Clergy fund to assist other local families
during this difficult time. Send all offerings to Holy Counselor and
mark in the memo “Vernon Clergy fund”. All donations will be forwarded
and deposited monthly in the Vernon Clergy Fund. Thank you in advance
for helping those in need in our area.
The new flower chart for 2021 is now available. Please sign up for altar flowers in memory of a loved one or to celebrate a special occasion. Price per arrangement is $25.
You may also call or email the office with your dates and Debbie will
put them on the chart for you. Then just mail a check or Venmo the
amount for the date(s). Please put “altar flowers” in the memo.
Check out Zoom meetings during the week to keep in touch with your church family.
