SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT - We are approaching the beginning of Advent and we find ourselves in the precarious position of ending the year with a deficit of $20,000.00. We have been badly hit this year with the roof and our furnace is in dire need of some repair which will set us back another $5000.00. SO, as we approach Advent and year end, please pray about this and consider giving Beaches a financial Christmas gift.

Evening news is where they begin with "Good Evening" and then tell you why it isn't.
