An Ongoing Ministry-We Welcome Pop Tabs!
The children’s Sunday School classes welcome any pop tabs from aluminum cans. Bring the tabs you have collected to church any Sunday and place them in the large wooden house in the community/choir room. Or you can give them to Stephanie Shelton or any child in the Sunday School program. We just recently donated 7.5 pounds of tabs to the Ronald McDonald House!
