  • Come eat at IHOP on Sunday, July 28th from 4pm – 7pm for a CHIU fundraiser. Let them know when you order that you are there for CHIU and 20% goes to CHIU. You can order it to-go as well.

  • If you have misplaced any items in the church, come see Karen in the office; it’s where many lost things go.
  • If you have recently changed your email address or phone number or signed up for Faith Direct and no longer need envelopes, please send a note to the office so we can update the system and make sure you don’t miss out on any information we have to share with you.
