 Outreach Easter Basket Project
Our next Outreach project is Easter baskets for our shut-ins (10 individuals/couples).  We will be gathering items Sunday, March 30 through Sunday, April 13.

 Easter Lilies
Easter lilies will be for sale in the lobby March 23 through April 6.  The cost is $8.00 each.  You may order them in honor or memory of someone.  They will be delivered to the church on April 17, in time for Love Feast, and be displayed in the sanctuary on Easter Sunday.  You may take them home after Easter Sunday service.

 Palm Sunday
Our children will be participating in our Palm Sunday service (April 13) by carrying palm branches in a special procession-parents, please make plans to join us!

Love Feast
On Thursday, April 17, we will hold our traditional Foot Washing / Love Feast service at 6:30pm, with communion also being observed.

Vacation Bible School: June 16-20
VBS has been set for June 16-20 (6:30-8:30 pm) for ages 3 through Senior High.  This year's theme is "Weird Animals."  Children will be empowered by all the unexpected, and yes, weird ways that Jesus demonstrated unconditional, one-of-a-kind love.  A VBS survey was included in the March 16 bulletin.  Donation sheets will soon be on the table in the entryway.

Children's Activities
Our Children's Church meets on the second Sunday of each month.  Following the children's story in the sanctuary, children from preK through fifth grade are invited to meet upstairs in the Sunday School room for Children's Church.  If you are willing to help with this great experience, contact Lauren Puffenbarger.

Harvest Table/My 2 Cents Worth
The Harvest Table is open for garden items or baked goods that will go towards the Global Food Crisis Fund.   My 2¢ Worth Jar sits on the table in the Entryway each Sunday for your donation to help alleviate hunger in Africa. 

 Prayer Chain
Please submit Prayer Chain concerns to either Lura Ritchie or Cheryl Dean.
