 LET’S FILL THE CALENDARS!  If you haven’t already, let’s fill up our Worship Supplies and Altar Flower calendars.  These calendars are posted on the hallway bulletin board as you approach the Fellowship Hall.  What a great way to honor someone whether it would be for graduation, a wedding anniversary or a birthday.  Don't forget, after our Sunday service(s), the altar flowers are yours to keep.
