You can now order Easter Lilies in memory or in honor of your loved ones to decorate our church sanctuary
this year at Easter. Our Senior High Youth Group (D.O.G.S.) is now taking orders for Easter lilies as a fund
raiser for their ongoing mission projects and trips. Arrangements have been made to purchase
top-quality 6 inch potted Easter lilies with five or more blooms at a reduced rate. The lilies will be
delivered and placed in the church by our Senior Highs for Easter Sunday, April 20th. You will be able to take
your lily/lilies home to enjoy after Easter if you wish. Please fill out the order form below and return it to the
church office with your payment no later than Sunday, April 6th. Thank you for your support!

If you or someone you know
is in the hospital, or has a
hospital stay scheduled,
please let Pastor Kevin know.
The hospital may or may not
contact the church, so it is best
for you to contact Pastor Kevin
as he would like to know you’re
in the hospital so he can stop by
for a prayer or at least give you
a call of encouragement.
