 of Esther (January 2020).  Nursery will be provided.  Got Questions? Call Thea (507.227.9513) or

 word?  Coffee Break meets on Wednesday mornings 9:30 a.m. at First CRC in Edgerton, starting October 9.   
 The schedule is flexible. You can volunteer weekly, twice a month or once a month.  Please contact
