New Ministry Opportunity - Bee Gees

The Bee Gees (Building and Grounds Guild) will maintain and improve our buildings and grounds while giving us the opportunity to work together and get to know each other better. Bee Gees activities will get together occasionally in small or larger groups to tackle general clean ups to big improvements.
Whatever your favorite tool?  Paint brush, vacuum, mop, hammer, rake, shovel, spade?

St. Mary’s projects, inside and out, large and small require tools from a broom to a ditch witch. 
Please sign up in the Great Hall or contact Bill Wayne.
