     AIDS STOCKINGS DUE THIS SUNDAY!

In 2000 Bev Larsen began what is now tradition for our church. With the help of Sharon Hardman and the hands of many helpers they create custom stockings filled with items that can be helpful for someone who is financially strapped due to the cost of expensive medications just to keep them well while dealing with the stresses of HIV/AIDS.  All items are donated and then assembled by the congregation.
