Great Day of Service. Please plan to join in as our church family gathers to spread God's love in the community. Our ninth annual Great Day of Service is Saturday, May 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and you won't want to miss it! After breakfast and a devotion, we will head out into the community in project teams for a fun-filled day. There will be something for all ages (children, youth, and adults) and skills. Save the date, and watch for registration information next week. Help make it a truly great day!
Tuesday night bible study. Pastor Nick is beginning a study of the Gospel of John in April. The class meets in the Fellowship Room each Tuesday at 7:00 p.m., and all are welcome!
Lenten worship. Please join us this and every Wednesday evening in Lent for a brief worship service at 7:00 p.m.
GRACE Transitional Housing drive. During the season of Lent, we will be collecting items to outfit an apartment for GRACE. The GRACE Transitional Housing program works with homeless individuals and families to help move them towards independence. At the Outreach kiosk you will find lists of items needed. You can then sign up to provide items which you will bring to church. If you have any questions, please contact Lori Anderson.
Easter lilies. You can purchase an Easter lily to decorate the chancel for Easter Sunday morning. The cost is $10/plant, and you can include a dedication in honor or memory of a loved one. Sign up at the Worship kiosk, and please put your payment in the offering plate (marked “Easter Lily”).
The College Care Committee will be sending Easter care packages to our twelve college students on April 7. If you would like to contribute baked goods or snacks, please bring them to church this Sunday, April 7. We are also accepting cash donations for postage. Please place them in the College Care box on the Member Care kiosk. Thank you for your support. See Susie Griffin or Karen Williams for questions.
Topgolf! Our April youth outing (grades 6-12) will be at Topgolf in The Colony. The event is planned for Sunday, April 28, after worship. If you are interested, please contact Taylor so she can get an accurate count. Chaperones are needed, too.
