  • THE QUILTERS ARE HOSTING A QUILTING BEE!  It’s going to be Tuesday, April 9th starting at 9am.  Even if you don’t think you know how to sew, they still want your help. All you need to know is how to tie a knot. It is hoped all the quilts will be made for the high school graduating seniors and more!  Come for a day of food and fun. See more information in the upcoming April newsletter.

  • CHRIST IN OUR HOME prayer booklets for April-June are here on the Welcome Center Table.  These are free, courtesy of Faith Lutheran.

  • THERE ARE 5 SUNDAYS THIS MONTH so that means it’s “Picture Hope” month.  If you want to participate, please pick up a film canister by the door going out and fill it with as many quarters you can during the month and return it the last (5th) Sunday of the month and place in offering plate.  Thank you!  All proceeds go to World Hunger.
