Easter Candy
Easter is just around the corner! And along with Easter, comes an egg hunt! We are in need of non-nut, non-chocolate candies to be stuffed into the eggs. Please leave donations in the basket in the “children’s wing” or see Kristen Schill if you have any questions. Thanks in advance for your participation!
Easter Egg Hunt
Join us for our Annual Easter Egg Hunt at 3pm on Palm Sunday, March 20. Come ready to spend time with friends, take pictures with the Easter Bunny and fill your baskets with goodies as we enjoy an afternoon of fun together!!
Easter Lilies
It is time to order Easter lilies to celebrate Christ’s Resurrection and help beautify our sanctuary . The envelopes are available starting today and are due March 13. The cost is still only $10 per plant. Place the completed envelope in the offering plate or give to Vicki Lanham. Thank you.
 
Serving a meal at Embrace 
We will be buying and preparing a dinner for the outreach program at Embrace Church on Monday, Feb. 29. About half of the 100+ people we will feed that night are probably homeless. It is always a blessing to be part of this ministry at Embrace. If you would like to join us that nightto help cook and clean up, please contact Randy Greenup at rgreenup@aol.com.
                         Altar Flowers (note price change)
The altar flowers are not only beautiful but also a meaningful way to honor a loved one or special day. The posters to sign up are located in the hallway to the left as you enter the sanctuary. We have several vacant dates in 2016. Please note the cost has been increased to $55 per week. Please place your payment in the offering plate  with the designation “Altar Flowers” on your check.
