EASTER ENVELOPE OFFERING FOR MISSIONS:  Extra envelopes are available on the west parlor table for Friends’ special gifts this Easter season to support both local and regional/global outreach ministries, as discerned by  the Missions & Social Concerns Committee.  You also may just clearly designate your gift “Easter Missions” and place it in the offering plate this month.  The first $500 received will be matched by a Best Special Projects grant.  Thank you for tangibly sharing God’s love!
PEACE IS POSSIBLE SUNDAY:  The Parsonage Class welcomes all Friends on this second Sunday of the month to advocate for peace and nonviolence.  Pick up an information sheet today from the southwest parlor table.
