A Message from Pastor Karen:
Next Sunday, Nov. 10, is “Organ and Tissue Donor Sunday.” We will lift that up and offer ways in which we can sign up to be a donor. We have all known someone waiting for an organ and the chances are slim for many to ever have the opportunity to receive one ….. or when they do, their bodies might be beyond going thru the transplant process.
Giving the chance of increased life to someone is major – it is the greatest gift we can give of ourselves.
Won’t you consider, if you have not already, being an organ/tissue donor and making that commitment next Sunday, Nov. 10, if you haven’t already done so?
Blessings to all, Pastor Karen
