The Altar Flowers were given by Howard & Ellie Jones in honor of God our Father, and His son, Jesus Christ, who granted us our 61st wedding anniversary. Congratulations!
The Yellow Roses celebrate the 90th birthday of Mary Hudson Siciliano on January 5th, the 98th birthday of Viola Tolbart on Jan. 9th, and the 96th birthday of William Goodfellow on Jan. 16th. Happy Birthday!
The Carnations are in loving memory of Bob Crawford, husband of Jean, who passed away on Jan. 1st and Alice Kinder who passed on Jan. 8th. Our prayers are with these families.

Altar Flower

If you would like to place flowers on the Altar in honor or memory of a loved one, please sign up using the new 2015  Altar Flower Calendar.  It is near the West entrance of the Church Foyer.

Loose change
Second Mile
The total pocket change collected in 2014 was $2584.51.  This money is used for above and beyond the budgeted Missions commitments. Little is much when God is in it! 
A new journey of faith story shared by a member of the Florida Conference is available on the Telling Our Stories homepage.  Click here for this week's inspirational testimony.

Every other week, we will post a new story about who we are and what God is doing in our lives. About how we are ordinary people trying our best, with God's help, to point our feet toward being Jesus' disciples every day. And, how we don't get it right every time, we aren't perfect, and we also have mountaintop experiences.
