Easter Egg Making For 2016
Shirley Klinger and Kathy Cox have volunteered this year to head up the Easter Egg preparations that will take place in March. We are looking for new volunteers to help the older folks make this year's project a success as in past years. This is a very important ministry of the church by the UMW with help from the UMM. If the church does not support this effort to the UMW, this committee may dissolve. The ladies and gentlemen that have done this for years cannot continue at the pace they once did. Just a few good things the UMW & UMM committees have done for the church: purchased a new electric stove and gas oven for the church. Helped support mission trips of the church and pay there own dues and bills. This year we are switching it up a bit and asking volunteers to come and help in the afternoons and evenings beginning March 14th (1-5:30pm), March 15th (1-5:30pm & 6:30-9pm), March 16th(1-5:30pm), March 17th (1-5:30pm & 6:30—9pm), March 18th (1-5:30pm and if necessary March 19th (10am-1pm). This will give those that work an opportunity to help. Volunteer sign-up sheets will be in the Narthex. We will also hold an organizational meeting on Friday, March 11 beginning at 6:00 p.m. We need your help! Contact Shirley Klinger and/or Kathy Cox with any questions.
Get Easter Egg order forms are available in our website Online Library and in the Narthex.

Easter Egg Hunt - Saturday, March 19 at 10:00 a.m.
Save the Date! Gary's Sunday School class (aka Family Minis-tries) will host our annual Easter Egg Hunt here at the church. Something for Everyone! More details to follow.
