ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM THE FEBRUARY 18 BULLETIN

FLOWERS ARE GIVEN TODAY by Sherry Herrmann to the Glory of God and in honor of her birthday.

OUR LITURGIST TODAY is Rebecca Harbor Jones.

TEAM LEADER & ELDER ROUNDTABLE will meet today following the worship service. Ministry Team meetings will follow Roundtable.

YOUTH WILL NOT MEET TONIGHT. Enjoy your holiday weekend!

THE SOUPER BOWL OF CARING raised $241. The youth chose to give the money to Heifer International. The youth purchased a llama, a flock of chickens, and shares of a heifer, a pig, and a sheep. These farm animals will help families in poverty-stricken areas of the world.

NEW VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED ASAP IN THE NURSERY! We need your help to provide good care for our babies and toddlers in the nursery on a weekly basis. With enough volunteers, each person will be on a rotation to help every 4 to 6 weeks.

GARDENING WITH GRACE: Maggie White has created a brief survey to gauge interest in a Community Garden at Grace. Please follow this link to complete the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/67N7GMF.

THIS QUARTER'S GRACE HELPING MADISON DRIVE will benefit Inside-Out Ministries. They have specifically asked for donations of winter coats, scarves, gloves, and hats (especially handmade items); warm drinks like hot chocolate, coffee, and tea; and pancake syrup. Additional food, cleaning, hygiene, and administrative items are listed on their website at http://inside-outministries.org/donate/current-needs/

THE FLOWER SIGN UP SHEET FOR 2018 is on the table in the narthex. Please sign up for as many special occasions in the coming year as you like. Heritage Florist will prepare an arrangement appropriate for the season and deliver it to the church, but you may call them at the beginning of the week if you have a special request. The church office will give the florist your address and they will bill you directly for the floral arrangement (around $35) which you may take home after the worship service.
