There will be a bulletin board by the choir room where you can pull off a paper medicine bottle or luggage indicating that you can give $25 toward the youth mission trip supply needs. Money can be placed in the offering plate (cash in envelopes and memos indicating BELIZE SUPPLIES) or taken to the church office.
