UPCOMING EVENTS

EASTER LILIES ARE a beautiful reminder of Hope. Each year we use these lilies as a reminder in our sanctuary for Easter. These lilies are given in memory or to honor those we love. Please place your order with your favorite florist, then call the church office to tell us in whose honor or memory the lily is given. Deadline to have this printed in the Easter Sunday Bulletin Insert is Friday, March 22, 2019.
