Tuesday Bible Study

"If You Want To Walk On Water You've Got to Get Out of the Boat" 
by John Ortberg addresses getting out of our comfort zone. 

See Jane Harler if you wish to order a book.

If you enjoy seeing fresh flowers in the Chancel on Sunday mornings, please consider 
sponsoring a floral spray. You may dedicate the flowers in memory or in honor of loved ones, 
or commemmorate anniversaries and birthdays of family members. 
The arrangements are $65 and are yours to take home after the service. 

Here's an idea -- when you pick up your arrangement, disassemble the florals into several mini-bouquets and take one to a shut-in,  along with a bulletin, after church.

Sign-up Calendar is in the Welcome Center.
