Lawnmowers Needed
It looks like spring has sprung with the lawns getting greener and flowers are appearing in gardens. We are in need of more people to help with the lawn mowing for the summer. There are two riding lawn mowers so we will have teams of two. It can be a family or an individual. Mowers must be 18 years or older or must have a valid driver's license and an adult present to operate if the rider is under 18. Teams are scheduled on a rotating basis. So, if we have enough teams, you may have to do it just a few times during the summer. Please sign up NOW by contacting Shirley . Space is also available to sign up as a sub. If you have questions, please contact Shirley.

Christ in Our Home Devotionals

We have put out the current Christ in Our Home devotionals. They can be found in front of church next to the mailbox in the Rubbermaid tote. Please make sure the cover is replaced securely back on the tote once you've taken your devotional. Also, please note that in the tote are First Communion booklets. Those are for the First Communion students & their parents.
First Communion Booklets

Parents of First Communion Students: If you have not received a First Communion booklet, we have set out a Rubbermaid container next to the mailbox in front of church with the booklets inside. Each booklet has your child's name on it. They are next to the Christ in Our Home Devotionals. The devotionals are not needed for First Communion. However, you are welcome to take one to share with your family.
