Coming up . . .

**NEW**  Cemetery Clean-Up Day:  Saturday, March 30 @ 9AM-11AM; rain date Saturday, April 6.  Whatever time you can spare will be appreciated.  We will be picking up trash and branches, removing old decorations, and doing fill work where needed and seeding.  Kids love playing in the dirt -- bring them along to help!  



**NEW**  Congregational Meeting:  Sunday, March 31, immediately after worship.  Your Consistory respectfully requests your attendance at this special Congregational meeting.  We will be voting on funds needed to pursue the planned wall project west of the church that will eliminate the drainage and collapse problem.    



Women's Bible Study:  Thursdays, March 7 through April 11 at 6:30PM-8PM.  Our theme is based on the book, "Become Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People."  Join us and we will learn together.  Study guide is $5, which can be paid to our leader Paula E.  Light snacks and beverages will be provided. 


  

Fellowship Survey:  Please take a moment to complete a fellowship survey. Leave in the basket when you have completed it. Both are located on the table at the back of the church.



Mission for March:  "The House" in Phoenixville is a women's outreach that works to move previously homeless women to self-sufficiency by providing resources and tools needed to break the cycle of dependence and poverty. They provide transitional housing, support and intervention to homeless and vulnerable single women in Phoenixville and bordering communities.  It is our Mission Committee’s hope that if each congregant could bring in one item from the list, we would be able to present them with a nice donation. Quantity doesn’t matter, they will USE EVERYTHING!  Bring your items in and place them in the green laundry basket at back of the church. Read about The House here:  https://phxvillewomensoutreach.org/about-the-house

Needs List:  laundry detergent; dryer sheets; Swiffer wet cloths; dishwasher tablets; Comet cleanser; blue handi-wipes; postage stamps.



Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Breakfast:  Saturday, April 13 at 10AM

All children (toddler-5th grade) and their families are invited to join in the fun beginning at 10AM with a yummy breakfast.  All are welcome, so please spread the word.  Children should bring a basket.  A sign-up sheet will be located on the table at the back of the sanctuary on March 10. Volunteers are needed to help plan and prepare breakfast.  Please see Chris B or Johnny C if you can help.  We also need volunteers to fill eggs with treats and fun items.  Bags of empty plastic eggs will be available in the back of the church beginning March 17 for you to take home and fill with candy, stickers, and gifts of your choosing.

Please bring back the filled eggs by Sunday, April 7.
