THE MAUNDY THURSDAY SERVICE will be this Thursday, April 18, at 7:00 p.m. The service will begin in the sanctuary and will move to the fellowship hall for Holy Communion. Following communion, we will reenter the sanctuary for the stripping of the church.

THE GRACE HELPING MADISON drive for this Spring is sponsored by our Confirmation Class. They will be assembling "assistance kits" with gallon baggies, water bottles, toothbrushes, tooth paste, soap, tissues, washcloths, crackers and/or granola bars. Please bring in any of these items to the church by Sunday, April 14. This will give the class time to assemble the kits and redistribute them to congregation members who would like to keep one or two in their cars for those times when they are asked for assistance from someone in need.

PLEASE COME JOIN THE FUN for a property work day on Saturday, April 20, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The primary tasks will be trimming trees and shrubs, weeding flower beds, and other such sprucing up of the grounds. Help keep God's house and grounds in good order!

GRACE'S EASTER EGG HUNT will be held Easter Sunday morning, April 21, during Sunday School time. Children, youth, and their families are invited to join us in the Fellowship Hall at 9:30 a.m. for an hour filled with a festive craft, a joyful story, and of course, an exciting egg hunt! If anyone is interested in helping, please contact Meghan Laury Tucker.
