Please take one of our new Preschool brochures available in the narthex
and hand it to someone who may have a child in his or her life
who is eligible to attend our preschool. This might be a
neighbor, friend, relative, co-worker, child or grandchild of
someone in your life. Or, maybe it is a mom or dad in line
with you at the grocery store with a small child. Reach out
and share the good news about our school: cheerful
classrooms, small classes, family-friendly, faith-based.
Full-day, half-day, extended hours. Print your name on the
card; ask them to bring it when they come to see the
school and you will receive a special gift!
We are no longer using a commercial florist for our altar flower display. In an effort to keep the cost reasonable, the guild members have decided to shop for and arrange the altar flower display. As a result, the donated amount for altar flower dedications will only be $30.
Money donated towards dedications is used to offset the cost of supplies and materials that are used in various dedications. Dedications can be designated to:
and will be shown in print in the bulletin of the Sunday you requested on the dedication chart. Various sign-up charts are located on the wall in the narthex to the right of the coat room.
