CLEAN UP SUNDAY

In preparation of the Bishop's visit next month, we plan to come together after the 11:00 am service on Sunday, May 15th to clean up the church campus! If you are interested and willing to coordinate this effort, please email Emily at emilydunevant@gmail.com. And...if you plan to attend the 9 am service and would like to help out, we will have a few smaller jobs for folks to do between 10 and 11 am.
COFFEE HOUR HOSTS

Do you like the chance to gather socially after the 11:00 am worship service? If so, help us keep the coffee hour going.

Please consider signing up to host a Sunday. Here is a sign up genius link to make it easy.
