annimated crossFrom the Church Office and the Security Task Force:
Do you have a key to the church? We are doing a key audit so we can give those who do have keys a security alarm code. If Sherry has not contacted you and you have a key, please let her know right away so you can be added to the list. Once this is in place, we don't want the Holly Police Dept. to show up because you didn't have a security code. Thanks so much.

Prayers For Our Missionary Families
The Holly Presbyterian Church supports two missionary families as part of our ongoing outreach to the world: the Keefer family (serving Christ through their Athletes in Action ministry at U of M in Ann Arbor, Michigan) and the Iobst family (serving Christ through the Operation Transit ministry in Algeciras, Spain).  We are called to act as the hands and feet of Christ in our world, and because we cannot all serve in full time ministry, we offer our support financially, and spiritually, to those who do. Please pray for these families and consider sending them a note or e-mail of encouragement.
