Easter Breakfast

Once again, our youth and their families will be hosting an Easter Breakfast on Sunday, March 27. This free-will offering breakfast helps to provide hospitality to the many people who will be coming to worship that morning. If you are able to help out, be on the lookout for sign-ups on the blue sheet. We will also need help the day before as we prepare the food and Gathering Area in festive decoration for Easter. 

Mothers' Day Cookies

Youth will be taking orders for cookies starting in mid-April for pick-up on Mothers' Day (Sunday, May 8). This money will go to help out in efforts in sponsoring a refugee family. Please save the date as we prepare to make the dough and decorate cookies. We'll also have free sample cookies just for mothers! Thanks moms!
