SINGERS WANTED:  Singers are needed to help with worship!  We are in the process of re-launching our microphoned singers ministry and need people who can either read music, are a fast learner or are confident in singing their part well enough to help others learn theirs.  The commitment only involves getting together periodically to learn songs and singing out during our worship times, sometimes on mic.  If interested, please sign up at the Welcome Center.  Contact Kyle Jones for more information.
DON'T FORGET:  Our flags are in need of being replaced.  We want to keep them looking nice and flying proudly!  If you haven't already paid $10 to replace the flag you originally purchased, please do so ASAP!  You can give your money to Kim Hanley or Tanya Welch at the office.  Thanks!
