ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING
On Easter Sunday, April 20th, we will be receiving the One Great Hour of Sharing offering.  OGHS is used by the UCC and several other denominations to support development, disaster and refugee needs in 138 countries.   This offering also has been used to provide disaster relief and immigration assistance in the US.  In 2013, over $2.3 million dollars were raised.  Please give thought this year to generously supporting this important outreach ministry.

EASTER FLOWERS FOR SANCTUARY
There is a signup in the entryway for those who would like to donate Easter flowers in honor or in memory of loved ones, to decorate the sanctuary on Easter morning.  Each plant costs $15, and the deadline is April 13.
