Easter Postcards

The Board of Outreach has set a congregational goal this Easter of personally inviting 500 people to worship with us.  If every family invites just one person, we will easily accomplish this goal as a congregation. We mailed thousands of Easter invitations to the community. However, there are 500 extra invitations available at the display in the church narthex for you to take to invite a friend, family member or neighbor!
