Pastoral Care Announcements

Advent Homebound Visitation
Sundays in December

On the altar rail will be cards with the names of our homebound who could use a bit of Christmas cheer.  Would you please consider picking up one or two to send a note, visit, or take some goodies? Let them know their church loves them and has not forgotten them.  For more information, contact Julie Wright at 404.240.8203 or juliew@prumc.org.
