This will culminate in a baptism by immersion on Palm Sunday. Those who wish may formally join the church on Easter Sunday. If you want to participate, please contact Pastor Hayes at your earliest opportunity.

Lenten Flowers.....

To interpret the themes of austerity and reflection during Lent, the members of the Flower Committee will create an arrangement for the chancel that will last for the season, with elements being added each week until the final, glorious blooming of Easter. Therefore, we ask that if you wish to honor loved ones during Lenten time, perhaps you would like to make an additional donation to the church or one of its missions in your loved one's name, or select a date after Easter. As usual, you will have the opportunity to sponsor lilies at Easter.
