Book Collection for McClernand School
Community Ministry News Flash! Several people have asked us if we were going to be collecting gently used children’s books for McClernand school like we did two summers ago. The answer is yes!! We will have a collection box sitting in the back of the church during the months of June, July and the first part of August. We appreciate your continued interest in this project. McClernand is always so appreciative of this support.
