Good morning all,

The day and week are starting out with lovely spring like weather!  It probably won’t last, but we can plan to enjoy it while it does.  Thanks to Frank for mowing lawn at the church over the weekend.  It’s a sure sign that spring is coming when you hear the buzz of lawn mowing! 

Steve, our liturgist this month, mentioned another event coming soon.  Daylight saving’s time begins next Sunday morning!  That means we set our clocks forward one hour!  There should be plenty of reminders as we get closer to Sunday and I’ll try to send a reminder near the end of the week.  I know no one wants to show up as worship is finishing!

We circulated a sign up sheet for pre-ordering cinnamon rolls for Easter weekend yesterday. This is a United Methodist Women fund raiser.  We decided since the dinner rolls are so popular for Thanksgiving we’d try cinnamon rolls for Easter.  We will continue to accept orders the next two Sundays. They will be packaged in ½ dozen to a pan for $5.00.   I will also record your order from an email to the office if you would like to order that way.  Baking will be on Friday March 30th.  If you would like to pick up rolls on Friday afternoon or Saturday, let me know and we will arrange to make that happen.  The rolls will have cream cheese icing and no raisins or nuts (to avoid dislikes and allergies).

We also hear that the United Methodist Men will serve breakfast on Easter Sunday before worship!  The breakfast will feature pancakes and sausage and will be free to anyone who wishes to partake.  Very nice gentlemen!

Thanks to all who gave to our special offering yesterday.  Nearly $200 was donated for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief).  UMCOR is always a first responder when disasters strike in our country and all over the world.  This special offering goes to offset their administrative costs so that 100% of other donations go directly to the disaster relief and victims.  If you missed yesterday’s offering and would like to donate to UMCOR administration, let me know and I can help.

There’s not much happening at the church until the end of the week. 


  • There will be an inspection to be sure we are in full compliance with health department rules regarding our FISH distribution.  I don’t know the time, but leaders of our FISH program are aware.


  • Set up for FISH


  • It’s FISH distribution day!  We hear that CAP will be delivering food to us Friday morning, which is a change from the “usual” procedure.  That means more work and longer hours on distribution day, but it also means our people don’t have to go to the warehouse to pick up the food.  Hopefully, it will be a good trade off.  The sign up sheet for working on March 9th was circulated yesterday and the page is nearly full.  If you did not get a chance to sign up and would like to work on Friday, you can reply to this email and I will get your name on the list.

I guess that’s all for this morning.  Have a wonderful week!

Blessings, Sharon
