Announcements: Week of October 5

Please join us on Sunday, October 14th, as we celebrate “Worship in Pink” day. The purpose of this day is to increase breast cancer awareness in our community. We have partnered with the North Carolina Triangle to the Coast Affiliate of Susan G. Komen to help us to open the lines of communication about breast health, promote breast cancer education and share the important message that early detection and treatment offer the best chance for surviving breast cancer. Additionally, we want to celebrate those who are breast cancer survivors and honor the lives of those who are no longer with us because of this deadly disease. We ask everyone to wear pink on Sunday, October 14th to commemorate the Worship in Pink day.  Also, please join the Cancer Support Ministry in celebration of cancer awareness and honoring all cancer survivors throughout the month of October. Remember, early detection saves lives.
