Altar flowers
If you would like to donate flowers for the altar for Christmas or any day in thanksgiving (for birthdays, anniversaries, etc) or in memory of a loved one, please contact Lois.

Canned goods and other nonperishable foods
Please bring your donations. These are collected each Sunday and presented at the altar as part of our offering, then transferred to the needy.

Help needed!
Would you like to serve as an usher one Sunday a month? Ushers not only welcome visitors and show them to their pews; they also help set up and put away the microphones, turn on the air conditioning when needed, distribute materials for the service, and ring the bells. Join the team!
