SIGN UP FOR FLOWERS.? The flower sign-up book has pages for 2016, and is on a table by the kitchen, just waiting for you to choose a date. You will be sent a reminder letter in time to get your dedication in the bulletin.

We will continue to get the flowers from Marsh through Easter, when a local grower will be contacted about providing our bouquets. The flowers will continue to cost $35.00 from Marsh. We don?t yet know the price from the local grower; that information will be posted when we get it. You are always welcome to provide your own bouquet, just let us know.?

COFFEE HOUR HOSTS NEEDED.? We are in need of coffee hour hosts. All the supplies are provided, grab a friend, or someone new to partner with you. It is a great way to provide a service to the church and encourage a sense of community. Won?t you sign up??

OFFERING ENVELOPES READY FOR PICK UP. You will find the 2016 offering envelopes on a small table, outside of the sanctuary doors. Please pick up your envelopes. If you are new or don’t have envelopes yet, there are some new ones to pick from.

Please place your name and envelope number on the piece of paper. If you have envelopes, but no longer want them, please write no on your box. We will pull the box. Thank you.?
