Crossroads Baby Bottle Fundraiser
Although many from Living Word participate in this throughout the year, the Crossroads Baby Bottle Fundraiser *officially* takes place between Mother's Day (May 9) and Father's Day (June 20) each year.  If you'd like to participate at this time or with an extra donation, baby bottles are on the table in the fellowship hall and we will hunt up some more this week.  Fill one with spare change, bills, or a check, and return it to the church or to Crossroads on/before June 20.  There is also a "text to give" option:  509-761-6420.  ** Thank you for the generous donations already given.**
