UPCOMING EVENTS
A Time to Remember...

On Sunday, May 6th, during our 10:00 service, there will be a time for people to share their stories and memories of Ruth Lakso. Per Ruth's request, no formal funeral service will be held and burial will be private. 

Ruth was a treasured member of our congregation for a number of years and her unending faith inspired many. Come and join us to remember Ruth and sing some of the hymns she loved so much.

The Confirmation Class will be heading to City Reach on Friday, April 27th through Saturday, April 28th. This overnight is open to youth age 15+ and adults. They are collecting travel size personal items (such as deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, body wash, razors, shaving cream). Any donations can be dropped off at the office during the week or put in the designated basket in the Narthex on Sunday. All donations must be received by Thursday, April 26th. Please contact Skip Aluisy for more information at netglobal@verizon.net.
STEPPING STONES "SAVERS" EVENT

It's a great time for Spring cleaning and de-cluttering!

Pack your items in boxes or bags and bring them to the  Parish Hall Monday through Friday, April 23rd - 27th during school hours. Volunteers will then be bringing them to Savers at the end of the week.


COMMUNITY OUTREACH
SEWING MINISTRY WELCOMES NEW MEMBERS
