Easter flowers adorning the sanctuary this morning are given in honor of or in memory of a loved one. If you pre-ordered a plant, you may pick it up after the service. If you are at the 8:30 a.m. service, please try to take plants not on the chancel so the 10:30 service can enjoy their beauty as well.
All are Invited to Participate in Singing the Hallelujah Chorus at the close of the service today. Please come forward to sing with the choir and take a copy from the director, OR for those who would like to sing along from your seats, there are copies in the pew racks.
A Heartfelt Thank you to all those who volunteered to help make our Deacons’ Spring Luncheon for Seniors and Veterans such a success. This event would not have been possible without your help. Thank you!
