​​​​Happy Spring Church Family!


April is filled with many health awareness topics. One that is extremely important to me is Donate Life Month. My father in law was a liver transplant recipient. Donate Life is as easy as marking the organ donation square when renewing a driver license. If it is not time to renew, simply making your wishes known to a family member or healthcare provider can make your desire to donate happen. There is no better gift than the gift of life. As Easter arrives and we look back on the gift of eternal life that Christ gave us on the cross, please consider the gift of organ donation. We can’t take them with us!



Other observances for the month of April are listed below.:




  •  Autism Awareness Month


  •  Child Abuse Prevention Month

  •  ​Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month


  •   Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month


  • ​Testicular Cancer Awareness Month


  • Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Month



​As always if you have any concerns or health questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
