Thank you to all of you who have assisted in making our grounds look beautiful this summer! There were many of you who mowed, weeded flowerbeds, and planted flowers. Thanks to all of you who donated flowers for these flowerbeds as well. It takes many willing hands to keep God’s house beautiful! ~ Brian & Linda
