Lawn Mowing Volunteers Needed
Trustees are looking for volunteers to mow grass this spring and summer. If you are looking for a way to support our church and see immediately what you have accomplished, this is a way you can do that. Sign up to mow the church lawn for a week, a couple of weeks, or whatever time you can provide to this need. Sign-up sheets will be in the church lobby. Trustees can show you what to mow and how to run the mower. There are two mowers available so bring a friend or spouse and complete the job in half the time! If you are not able to mow, sign up to donate $100 toward hiring a lawn service to mow for you. Contact a trustee if you have questions.
                           Thanks, Rick Less

Coordinating Our Building Use
Are you needing a place at the church for a committee meeting or event? Please note that ALL scheduling of the building's use must be cleared and scheduled through Julie in the church office. This is not a "permission" issue, but we do need this central location for keeping track of the building's activities (we are thankful to be able to host a growing number of Boy and Girl Scouts this year!). Just drop an email or phone the office (848-7213), so there are no surprises. Thank you!
