As a reminder, audio CDs ($10) and commemorative DVDs ($25) are on sale now for pre-order. Unfortunately, we can only take orders accompanied by payment (cash, check or credit/debit card).  They will be available next month for pick up.  Please see one of us for an order form. (There will also be some in the church office). Although we requested that no video be taken, we would humbly ask that those members who did so anyway not distribute them, and please purchase a DVD, so that the church can benefit from our much-needed fundraiser. Thank you so much!
