One Great Hour of Sharing: The One Great Hour of Sharing is an ecumenical offering that supports refugee resettlement and disaster relief around the world. Pick up a collection box for your household at Walnut Hill this Sunday, or make one for yourself if you prefer. Beginning with Ash Wednesday (Feb 25), at each meal, invite family members to put a coin in the collection box. During your table grace, include a prayer for some place and people of the world. On Easter Sunday (April 12) bring your offering to Walnut Hill, and it will be added to the special One Great Hour of Sharing offering received that day.
Some Assembly Required - Several new pieces of nursery equipment were recently purchased requiring some assembly. This should be a relatively easy job for someone skilled with his/her hands and able to follow instructions. Use reply email or contact Lauren Fouts to volunteer.
Thanks, news, etc...
