This is Memorial Sunday and our Church will again celebrate by remembering those in our families who have died, both civilian and military.  You will be invited to come to the Altar and light candles in memory of lost loved ones.  The Deacons will assist.                               

Anyone having a Graduating Senior should give the name and address to Senior Deacon Arlene Gagnon.  It was decided at a recent meeting to send a graduation card and a small monetary recognition to those students who have family ties to our congregation – whether parents or grandparents.  The Deacons are pleased to be able to do this from our funds.

Next Sunday is Children’s Sunday.  Plan now to be here to support our young people and our Sunday School Teachers.

Comfort Bag Lists to donate an item(s) thru June 1st to those going through cancer treatments are on the back table. Items can be left in the box in the back of the Sanctuary.
