FLOWERS FOR SANCTUARY
We hope you will choose a Sunday to place flowers on the altar in honor or memory of a loved one. Cost for this year is $45. You can sign up for a date in the hallway outside the fellowship hall on the bulletin board or by calling Dorla at the church office.
Do you want to make a difference? Do you have 2 hours a month to share? Do you take seriously Jesus’ words to “let the children come” to him? White Oak Elementary needs volunteers for a student mentor program to invest in the lives of children who need a supportive adult presence.

Notes from Wanda
One of my favorite phrases states, “Music washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” I have found this to be my experience throughout life especially through the listening and singing of hymns and other songs of my faith. Through music we can offer our thanks to God, commune with him, share our testimony, find a source of encouragement and strength and we certainly are provided the opportunity to serve God through the gift of music. I thank you for your congregational singing in the worship services and it is my hope that you carry the message of the songs with you throughout your journey in times of joy or sorrow.
Our choir is a great group of people who come together each week for one hour on Wednesday evenings to learn songs of our faith, fellowship together, encourage one another and share God’s message in worship. There are seats and extra music always available to anyone who would like to come have fun and serve through singing. I invite you to come and give it a try! This would be a great time to join us and help share with tunes in our hearts and words on our lips the message of God’s grace and love for all. I look forward to hearing from you!
