Bring flowers from home or from anyplace meaningful to you, and in our ritual we will share them in a display and send everyone home with a bit of beauty.

All-Committee Night: May 3

Committee work can be beautiful!The next of our regular All-Committee Nights at the church! Join us at 6:00pm with a brown-bag supper -- then at 6:30 we'll break off into our groups. Later we get back together to give brief reports on what we've done. It usually turns out to be fun because we enjoy each other's company!

Pick the committee that most interests you:
