Would you like to "do" the church newsletter? Several years ago, Pastor Pate began publishing a weekly newsletter. When Pastor Pate left, the board wanted to keep the newsletter going and so it has continued until now. It may be that our church membership does not see the need or perhaps it needs a fresh approach. If you would be interested in creating the newsletter each week, let me know.
