A Message from our President

The next meeting of GLAMA will be Wednesday, January 8, 2014 at First Baptist Church on West 3rd Ave. at 10:30.
Our program will be a police officier from the City of Lexington speaking to us about church security, lighting, locks, how to handle folks who stop in asking for money during Sunday services.
Please attend and invite your trustees or building and grounds folks to learn more about protecting God's property and buildings.
Looking forward in seeing you as the New Year begins for us.
