Announcements

The Chancel flowers are given in honor of Adel Ivey’s birthday, from your younger sister, Peggy!
 
Childcare is provided for children, 4 years old and younger in the nursery on Sundays during worship service.
 
Check the back of the chancel for the baskets loaded with lumbar pillows made by the women of Eve Circle designed for you to pick up and use to ease your back a bit while you enjoy the services each week (not to be used as a sleep aid!) Find one that suits your body, take it to your pew and return it when the service is over. And be sure and let the women of Eve Circle know what you think of this idea. Should they make more?

If you would be willing to donate to this cost, please use a pew envelope and mark it “UMW Upper Room.” Thank you!
