30 HOUR FAST– Grounded & Settled (youth ministry) will be raising money for the International Communion of Charismatic Episcopal Church’s orphans by fasting for 30 straight hours. We will start fasting at 7am on Friday, April 7th through Saturday, April 8th at 1 pm. For roughly $30 per month you could help support an orphan which will include their housing, food, clean water, medical needs and education. Last year we raised approximately $10,000 — these orphanages can use all the help they can get! You can either see a young adult in the lobby following services, use a green envelope marked “30 hour fast” or click here to give online by selecting 30-Hour Fast Donation in the “Gift To:” dropdown.
EASTER FLOWERS– Palm Sunday will be the last day to donate for Easter Flowers in memory of your loved ones. Please use the special envelopes found in the seat backs.
