MAY 5 • 12:30 PM • SANCTUARY
All are invited to an important Church Conference gathering which will take place following our 11 am worship hour on May 5 at 12:30pm in our main sanctuary. This meeting will include an update on our capital campaign, the work of our building planning team, as well as a recommendation from our Executive Lay Leadership for our next steps. This recommendation will be brought before our church body for a vote during this gathering as we Together move forward with the expansion and enhancement of the ministry we share. All are welcome to attend and all members are eligible to vote.
Mums for Moms
We want to celebrate the mother figures that have impacted our lives through their love. United Methodist Women are selling live mums in celebration of Mothers' Day for just $15 each. All proceeds benefit Feed the Kids for Summer and Metroplex Women's Clinic. These mums will decorate our worship spaces on May 11 and 12. Order your mums online by May 5!
