New Hymnal Donations
Our new “Glory to God” hymnals are here! If you’d like to help “give our congregation the gift of song”, you ‘ll find envelopes out on the table in the narthex. For a $20.00 donation, you can help to pay for a hymnal, and have a bookplate placed in the hymnal in memory or in honor of a loved one. Envelopes can be placed in offering plates during the service, or handed to a member of the congregation.

Focus on Mission: One Great Hour of Sharing
Beginning this week, our Focus on Mission during the service will be the One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) offering. The offering will be collected on Palm Sunday (March 29th). Donations are split equally between Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA), Self Development of People (SDOP) and the Presbyterian Hunger Program (PHP). Come find out more about the worthy work that the OGHS supports, and please give as generously as you are able.
