Next Sunday - Beautiful jewelry crafted by Carolina Vasquez of San Salvador, El Salvador is for sale in the parlor after the service. The July travelers to El Salvador fell in love with Carolina and her husband Damian, who own the guest house where they stayed, and with Carolina’s jewelry. All proceeds above Carolina’s wholesale price go toward the San Antonio Grande scholarship fund.

The Board of Christian Education is compiling a list of the email addresses of parents of Sunday School youth, so that we can communicate with you occasionally about the activities of Sunday School. If the office does not already have your email address, please provide it for this purpose. Thanks.
