Thank You from the SouperFest
Our church received a very gracious thank you note from SouperFest co-ordinator, Mr. Jim.
Dear Gayle and Northwood folk,
What a treat to experience the love and spirit of Northwood Congregational family and the most lovable person of Pastor Gayle. Clearly the Souperfest was an awesome success. …. Northwood piloted the model of rotation in church groups…. Many thanks, Mr. Jim
