DON’T FORGET the FOOD CART! Hundreds of families depend on your donations. With the uncertainty with the availability of government assistance this month, let’s make sure the Food Pantry has plenty of food to tide them over.

VOLUNTEERS for the PRE-SCHOOL ARE NEEDED during Sunday worship time. All of our children are precious gifts, and we are so blessed to have them. If you would be willing to give up your worship time for one Sunday and spend that time with the children, please contact the church office or Glenda Ellis, and we'll get you scheduled for service.

CHAIR YOGA meets Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12:30pm in the Fellowship area. Build increased flexibility and better balance with these low-impact yoga exercises. For more information, contact Lynn Ward.

SPRING FORMATION CLASSES are under way and will run through May 19. Two classes will be offered:
       Hallelujah Anyway by Anne Lamott with leaders Beverly Hooker and Mary Schmitz
       The Other Jesus: Rejecting a Religion of Fear by Greg Garrett with leaders Art Hall and Ted Pearson.

Note that there will be no classes on Easter Sunday, April 21.

DON’T FORGET the FOOD CART! Hundreds of families depend on your donations. Let’s make sure the Food Cart has plenty of food for the Food Pantry!

JOHNSON AUXILIARY collects items all year long—current needs are men’s pants sizes 30-34, men’s casual shoes (all sizes), umbrellas, and hygiene items (toothpaste; toothbrushes; large combs and brushes, particularly those for detangling hair).
