Our Sign is Back!

The Welcome to Saint Anne’s Church sign hung for years on a grand old tree that was hit by lightning in 2015. It now displays on a beautiful post donated by Don and Beth Parsons. David Lynch secured the post to the ground, stained it, topped it with a finial, and hung the sign in style.

House of Hope at Fletcher

This year, Saint Anne’s dedicated our Lenten donation to honor the late Peggy Smith by “adopting” and furnishing a room for a homeless mother and her children at The House of Hope at Fletcher. Saint John’s also adopted a room in honor of Albert and Thelma Hoyle.

These rooms are now home to two families who are happy to live in a beautiful, safe, nurturing environment.

We donated needed supplies (adult body wash and baby wipes) on October 18 and we plan a Christmas-season donation!
