Notice Board

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

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!

Ministries schedule
The draft schedule for clergy, altar guild etc. for January-July 2024 is now posted and will be updated as we go along. Please share this information with kupuna who don't access the Internet.

An illustrated list of the altar hangings used for different seasons and purposes is available here.

Eucharistic lay ministers, please arrive by 9:15 am. If you are unable to make it, please let Sally R. know.
