SAVE YOUR STAMPS!

You can help spread the gospel by saving stamps! (maybe from all those Christmas cards??) Place your stamps in the box on the little bookcase just outside the church office. Stamps are sold to collectors and the money used to prepare, publish, and distribute Spanish language curriculum for Sunday Schools in South America, Central America, Spain, and the US. When you clip stamps off an envelope, please leave at least  1/4 inch to 1/3 inch of paper around the stamp. Dealers will buy stamps with that size border. Stamps with smaller borders bring a lower price. Complete guidelines can be found by the stamp collection box near the office, or read about it right HERE! And there's more information HERE!
