THANK YOU to our Praise Team and Senior Choir, and to all those
who had a special part in our Easter Celebration today. Your efforts
are very much appreciated.
OUR EASTER OFFERING is designated for “One Hour of Sharing” a
ministry of Reformed Church World Service. RCA congregations
together raise money that allow (RCWS) to make a difference and
fight hunger in their own communities.
ELDERS INVITATION – If you have questions, concerns, joys, or
prayer needs that you would like to share, please see the Pastor or
an Elder today. Elders will be greeting at the doors as you leave the
sanctuary this morning and they are also listed on the back of your
bulletin. You may also make a notation on the Fellowship Register.
CAKE will be provided today following the morning service to celebrate
your generosity in providing toilet paper to the FNOW! Thank you!!
EASTER FLOWERS ordered from the Discovery Kidz can be picked
up this morning!
THE ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL GUIDE CLASS will NOT meet
A PRAYER GROUP will meet following the service in the sanctuary
to pray for Pastor George and Connections.
