Good afternoon, given the current regulations Governor Hogan put in place today with the spike in COVID cases, we are forced to cancel the meetings scheduled for November 22, at Cornerstone Community Church and the monthly meeting on December 7 at Burnside First Church of God. We will send out an email and / or call if the current status changes for January. If you know of a military or first responder family in need during the holiday season, please connect us to them so we may offer help. Stay safe, we appreciate all of you, talk to you all soon. We WILL get through all of this!
