Beware of Ice in Parking Lot
With the wet weather and the rise in temperature, it’s quite possible you’ve noticed the slippery surfaces around town. Our parking lot is one of those very slippery surfaces. Essentially, it is a sheet of ice that, if smoothed out, would be a great place to play some ice hockey. Please, be very careful if you come to the church for any reason.
