2024 Altar Flowers
The 2024 Flower Sign up chart is located on the bulletin board in the main hallway. Please consider signing up for a Sunday to purchase the flowers that will adorn the Altar.
The Florists in our area that have keys to the Church are also listed near the chart. If you choose to use a different florist, you are responsible for arranging pick up or delivery while someone is at the Church or has keys to open the door.

Pastor Joseph spent time traveling to the 2023 Annual Meeting of Vietnam Mission Initiative during the month of December.
β€œOn behalf of the NC Conference I have been having the honor of witnessing what the Lord had been doing in Vietnam through UMC's Mission Initiative for the past several years. Each day is filled with physically exhausting yet spiritually inspiring events from early in the morning till late in the evening. I am looking forward to sharing with you what God has been speaking to my heart during this visit in Vietnam.”
Peace, Joseph
