It needs painting and the floors need refinishing! Please help us by making a donation on Sunday! Thank you Thrivent for supporting this event!
Then, on March 10th, we will be holding our 2nd Annual International Women’s Day Tea. All females of the congregation are invited. This year’s theme is Inspiration Among Us and Sue is lining up some speakers from the congregation to share their stories. Bring a friend! Have your kids invite a friend!

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. Pastor Matt has set March 9th at 1:30 for First Communion instruction.
