Church Choir:  Please consider sharing your musical talent as a part of a special Choir Anthem on May 22. Practices will at 6:30 on Wed., May 11 and Thurs., May 19.

We plan to occasionally pull together a vocal choir to lift our voices in praise with special anthems in the coming months. We’ll organize a couple of rehearsals around participants’ schedules, and you can join in whenever you’re available.

 

Special Music for Summer:  Please sign up on the bulletin board or by calling the office to provide special music for worship (vocal or instrumental). We’d appreciate hearing from you, your family, or friends.

Spring Tea:  Women, children, and men too are invited to a spring tea on Saturday, May 21, 1pm – 3pm in the narthex.  You can bring your favorite teacup if you want.  Attire can be anything from very casual to your finest – whatever you’re comfortable in.  There will be tea, tea sandwiches, and dessert.  We’ll play croquet outside, weather permitting.  Please RSVP with the number of adults and number of children.

New Way to Celebrate   

A wrapped gift box is located by the bulletin boards in the narthex.  People can deposit a money or check into the box to honor anyone who is celebrating a birthday, anniversary, baptism, confirmation, or just having a good day.  There is an icon on the square reader to if you would like to use that method of giving.   All monies received go into the general fund to continue with Memorial’s programs and needs.  If you choose to share with the person being acknowledged, there are cards next to the box expressing a gift of money has been given to Memorial for their special reason. 

Sunday Volunteers
