Our Spring Trivia Night/Silent Auction is just around the corner on Wednesday, April 22.  A chili dinner will be served from 5:30-6:45 PM.  Trivia will begin at 7 o'clock.  We will have our silent auction and bake sale.  This is a youth sponsored event with proceeds to go to the capital needs drive.  Please support this night!  If you could donate an item for the silent auction and/or bake sale, it would be very much appreciated.  (There are baskets on the stage if you wish to supply one).  Tickets are available after church on Sundays, in the office or at the door on Trivia night.  Let's have great night of food, fun, and fellowship!

On behalf of everyone here at Uni-Pres Kindercottage, I thank you for blessing our ministry with your gift.  Brenda Crisp, Director

I want to send you a very warm thank you for your financial support in 2015.  The $1500 you donated went directly to the purchase of toys for our annual toy distribution.  Because of you, we were able to give away 4 toys per child.  We truly couldn't have done it without you.  Thanks again and God bless!
Jill Rice, Director Collinsville Food Pantry
