Flowers for the Sanctuary
Every Christmas season we are invited to bring in a poinsettia to adorn the sanctuary. You may bring them in at any time. For those who wish to do so in honor or in memory of a loved one, you are invited to fill out a form listing the names of those involved and they will be published in the Christmas Eve bulletin. Forms may be found on the tables at the rear of the sanctuary and in the foyer.
From the Financial Secretary:
As of Sunday, November 28, twenty pledges had been turned in.
Their total puts us only about 1/3 of the way towards the goal of our proposed local and mission budgets for 2011.
Please turn in your pledge sheets as soon as possible.
There are extra pledge sheets available on the tables at the rear of the sanctuary and also in the foyer.
