A QUESTION FROM THE WORSHIP COMMITTEE In an effort to be more inclusive, the Worship Committee is wondering if large print bulletins and hymnals might be helpful to some in our congregation. Would large print materials enhance your worship?  If so, please put a note in the offering plate or see the Chair of Worship Committee, Wendy Kelsh, or Rev. Karen Hill. Thank you.

KNIT AND WORSHIP If you listen better when you do something with your hands, we invite you to take a scarf from the basket in the Narthex.  Knit a few rows during worship, according to the attached pattern.  As you knit, pray for the person receiving the scarf. After worship, return the scarf to the basket; completed scarves will be given to people in need.  Questions, see Janet Monsen-Daniels or Chris Heritage.
