There will be a basket available for your cards and gifts at the banquet. Be sure any love gift checks are made payable to Dr. and Mrs. Michael Rogers and NOT to Westminster Church.

The banquet is not a surprise, but some elements of the program will be. A beautiful tribute is planned for our beloved senior pastor and his wife. Please do not miss it!
Sincerely in Christ,

Dr. John Light, Julie Diener, Eve Sypien, Stacy York, Betsy Graver
