Be Inspired by Our CoG Wall of Crosses

You are welcome to bring it forward during our Wednesday night Lenten Worship during the offering or drop it off in the church office (by April 14).

If your cross happens to have a story that goes with it - where it came from, who made it or any background information, please be sure to include that info too. Thank you.

The sign-up sheet is available in the gathering space; look for the table with the "Soup Supper Sign-Up" on it. Thank you for helping make soup suppers a great success!
