I would like to thank our staff, contractors and volunteers. The pictures below are by no means exhaustive, and we'll keep adding to the list.
"So those who were engaged in the work laboured, and the repairing went forward in their hands, and they restored the house of God to its proper condition and strengthened it (2 Chron 24:13)."

Memories by Linda Holmes
My mom and I used to go to bingo together, as I am sure many of you did. She would pay my way and then offer to split any winnings with me 50/50. That was very generous of her as my mom was fairly lucky at bingo. I always knew when she had won when I was younger. She would arrive home with the horn blasting to let the neighborhood know that she was coming home with the loot! We would sit side by side at the long wooden bingo tables and set ourselves up. Mom always had a bingo bag full of markers, good luck charms, and peppermints! I got to pick from an assortment of jingly doodads with googly eyes as my heathen good luck harbinger. She could play multiple cards at a time whereas I was usually limited to two or I’d get left behind! I just couldn’t keep up with the pace of the numbers being called.
Now that mom has passed, my adult daughter and I sometimes go together in her memory. We bring her precious bingo bag and dutifully set up the googly eyed doodads. As we play our cards, we pray that our beloved mom and grandma is up in heaven smiling down on us and wishing us luck! I’m grateful to the game for the good memories it brings…
