YOUTH READERS FOR PALM SUNDAY
Requesting all Youth to read parts of the Passion on Palm Sunday. Contact Erika Stoving at email@example.com to sing up.
We will concentrate teaching about Holy Week in our Sunday School sessions, starting now through Lent.
LADIES AND LIPSTICK
Please, this is a reminder for ladies to ‘blot their lips’ before taking the wine at Communion. The newer lipsticks are leaving a hard to remove stain on the altar linens, when we wipe the chalice, after serving wine at Communion. We kindly ask you to become mindful about the lipstick please.
Thank you, – Altar Guild
