Youth Group Cans and Bottles – We are once again collecting aluminum cans and plastic bottles to help fund our youth group. You can drop them off in one of the boxes at either entrance. If you could please remove all caps on the plastic bottles that would help us out. Unfortunately we are not taking glass bottles at this time. We hope to go to the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Houston in 2018. Thank you for the support!!
