THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR ALL THE AMAZING HELP MOVING INTO THE PANTRY LAST WEEKEND!!
BLESSING AND ENROLLMENT OF SEVERINA!
Thank you Thrivent, Jessica and John! Jessica and John provided support and lunch and we had a Thrivent Action Team Event that provided extra shelving and supplies we needed to move!!
LOOKING AHEAD: On March 3rd we will hold our Transfiguration Sunday Pancake Brunch; and on March 10th we will hold our International Women’s Day Tea; both will be immediately after worship. Signup sheets for both these events are now up in the gathering area.
2019 DIRECTORY – Our new directory has been printed and will be available next weekend for pickup!
EASTER LILIES AND TULIPS: We’ll be looking to place orders for our lilies and tulips within the next month so please be on the lookout for order forms!! We are awaiting final pricing from VanBrunt’s.
First Communion Class: When to begin receiving Communion is a mutual decision made by the person, their parents and the Pastor. If there is anyone who desires to receive the sacrament, the first step in the process is to receive the age appropriate study materials and information. Please reach out to Debbie K for the material.
Food Pantry/Clothes Closet update: As this is written, Sue is preparing the walls of the old pantry for painting and we are expecting the MU Bowling Team to arrive at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning to paint the old pantry with Sue. They’ll also be moving the rest of the food (we hope) from the blue office into the new pantry!
Thank you: Thank you to everyone who has signed up to do coffee hours from now until June. As of today the following dates are still available and goodies are needed: May 12, June 2, June 23 and June 30 and then we are done for the summer!
