The life of our beloved Sandy Beam will be celebrated on Sunday, February 27th at 2pm at First Presbyterian Church in Mount Airy. A reception for everyone will follow in the Fellowship Hall. The service will be full of music and wonderful memories, as we give thanks to God for the life of our dear friend!

Mary Higgs, moderator of the Congregational Care Ministry Team, is in charge of the reception and will need your help. She will have a sign-up sheet tomorrow morning at worship. If you are able to provide food or other assistance, please be in contact with her.
