Easter Breakfast
Please sign in if you are planning on having a delicious “after Sunrise Service” breakfast at the church on Easter Sunday. We came wicked close to running out of food at our Ash Wed. Pancake supper, so we do not want to chance that happening again. As far as what you can bring for the meal, may I suggest cut-up fruit, fruit juices, English muffins, butter, and jams or jellies. Bacon, eggs and sweet rolls will be prepared by the kitchen crew. Please join us !

Easter Flower Order Forms
We are now taking orders for Easter flowers. You will find the order form in the March Newsletter, as an insert in the Sunday bulletin or on the Gathering Space table. If you wish to bring in your own flowering plant, but would like a dedication, you can do that as well by indicating that on your order form. The deadline for ordering flowers is Sunday, March 20th.
