Ongoing Events

Friendly Greetings Cards: Send thoughts and prayers to fellow church friends. Just stop at
the table in Lauren Hall to sign greeting cards for those of the congregation who
need support, encouragement, or who we haven’t seen in a while. It’s simple… If
you see a card, jot a note and sign it. If you don’t see a card for someone, start one.
To ensure delivery, cards will be limited to people listed in the church directory.
Remember, it is up to you to help start cards so we are less likely to overlook
someone. Contact Tricia Mathis, Discipleship Committee chair, with questions.
Coffee Hour: Host the social coffee hour. Bring baked goods, snacks and a beverage for all to
enjoy after church. Ask a friend to co-host and help with serving and clean-up.

Usher: Sign up to serve as an usher during worship service.
Lay Reader: Sign up to serve as Lay Reader for a worship service.
Flowers: Sign up to donate flowers to adorn the altar. Note any special reason such as birthday, anniversary, special occasion or memorial.
