The garage sale
was a great success!
$1330 was raised to
go toward improvements to the building
Thank you to everyone who donated treasures, helped set up and
put away, and all who
shopped the sale! We
couldn’t have done it
Start saving your
stuff for the next sale!
Many thanks to
who graciously provided our new name
Marilyn (a member of Central CC)
owns Bull's Trophy Shop in Springfield and wanted to give this as a
gift to Abbey Road CC. Our original
list was not complete, so if you do
not have one, please let the church
office know, and we will order them
in a couple of weeks. There will be a
metal board in the Narthex where
you can pick them up and return
them each Sunday. With new members coming on board and a new
Minister and family, they will be a
great help for everyone to learn

I am so grateful for the cards, notes,
texts, emails, visits, and especially for
your prayers during my recent illness;
all were appreciated. Thank you to everyone!
To Pastor Ron and my friends at ARCC:
Thank you for the cards and your visits
to the hospital while I was a patient there.
It meant so much to me and I feel truly
blessed. It was a difficult time that was
made easier by Pastor Ron and
my church family.
