Welcome Another New Member

A few weeks ago, Compton welcomed another new member, Charlsi, who transferred her membership. She has three children who are now the core of the new youth Sunday school class! Charlsi has already joined the choir.

Coins, Cans Contribute to Compton Cares

This has been a great month for contributions through the spare change coin bank and also the can collection. Dave took some 205 pounds of aluminum cans that had been accumulating for about a year and exchanged them for $96.82. A couple of weeks later, Norm took two heavy cans of coins to the sorter at the bank and returned with a check for $142.19. Together, these contributions by church members will make one month's principal and interest payment on our 3% disability access loan. As one of our newer Compton members has noted, it's possible for anyone to contribute to this effort, even if it is "only" picking up and saving cans, or saving spare change. Thanks to everyone who has donated!
