ANGEL TREE UPDATE
Thanks to the generosity and giving hearts of Laurel Ridge members, over $1,500 was donated to provide Christmas gifts for many families in the community.  Each of the children on our Salvation Army Angel Tree received the toy they most wanted, plus much more including clothes, socks, a coat and a warm blanket.  The money raised at the member Christmas Jubilee was used to purchase canned soup, boxed macaroni ‘n’ cheese, toothbrushes and toothpaste for the Community Kitchen.  What a great way to share our bountiful blessings with the community!

NEW MONTHLY PAYMENT OPTION
As a convenience to our members, monthly ACH withdrawals can now be drafted from your bank account to pay your monthly statement! Banks drafts will be scheduled each month for the total amount due on your current statement to debit your account on approximately the 15th of each month.  To choose this payment option and authorize monthly drafts directly from your bank account, please contact the office or download the ACH Authorization form.  Allow up to one month for this service to begin after the form is completed and returned.
