Car Wash for Operation Christmas Child

Christmas Trees Needed for VBS

Christmas Trees Needed for VBS

We are still in need of about 10 more Christmas trees to use as “forest” decorations for VBS next week. If you would be willing to lend us one (or more) for next week, you can drop it off at church this week and leave it in the youth room downstairs, marked with your name. You could also drop it off on Saturday, between 10 am and 2 pm, when FOTC hosts their car wash, or bring it to church on Sunday. We will need them by Sunday, at the latest, because we will begin decorating right after church. They can be picked up the following Sunday, 8/12.

Video Stars Needed

The Fellowship of the Cross needs children and youth to help film a video that will be included in the Mother’s Day services on May 13. We will meet in the Simpson Room at 11 am, this Sunday, April 8. Outdoor scenes, and possibly some indoor scenes, will be filmed at 11, and additional scenes will be filmed in the sanctuary at the conclusion of the 11 am service. The young actors will likely be involved from 11 am until 1 pm. They should come dressed for the outdoors. See Bill Utterback or any member of the FOTC team for more information.
