A note from Hannah —
“I know we are all so eager to get back and I am so excited to begin to rebuild with each of you. I am asking for folks to pick a day for the inside opportunities at this point to allow more companions the opportunity to return. Please consider this as you begin to make your way back. The opportunity for fellowship and presence is ALWAYS open, you just may not have a formal ‘job’.”

– Saturday Breakfast Prep will return on April 3

– Easter, April 4, Sunday companions are needed for the DWT’s return to the parking lot.
