Olivebranch women’s group meets tomorow night
Everyone is welcome to attend the program at 7:15 p.m. Learn how the church’s handbells and chimes ring and make different sounds. Our Director of Handbells, Becky Dunstone, will give us the opportunity to create a song. The program is very different than the one done for the Seniors.
