Drift Mission News
We are sorrowed to announce that the Drift Presbyterian Church
will be closing its doors as of the end of the coming month of June.
Efforts are being made to still hold our 2010 Mission Trip,
but this may not be possible.
All those who’d planned to attend the Drift Trip in August
will meet on Sunday, June 6 in the Parlor,
immediately following the 11:00 a.m. service, to consider options.
The Drift Pancake Breakfast is still scheduled to take place on June 13
to help fund the trip, if a way is found to carry it out.
Please hold the members of the Drift Presbyterian Church
in your thoughts and prayers. This is a most difficult time for them.
Please hold our 2010 Mission Trip efforts in your thoughts and prayers, as well.

We are faithful to Christ and spirited in all we do, but we're also
