Financial Stewardship - Contributions for the last weekend: $1,748.00 regular collection and $2,615.00 Building Fund.  Thanks for your generous support.


Contribution Statements - Contribution statements are being prepared for all parishioners who made contributions during the year 2002.  Please check the address on your new box of envelopes and be sure it is correct.  If your address is different for the one on your envelope box, please contact Julia Tartt at 226-0622 and give her your correct address.  Statements will be ready in the next couple weeks and she needs correct addresses on all parishioners.  If you did receive a box of envelopes for the year 2003 and plan on making contributions, please contact Julia Tartt so that she can get you a box of envelopes.  It is strongly requested that all contributions be in envelopes if at all possible.  Please be sure to put the amount on the outside of your envelopes before placing them in the collection basket.  This will make it easier on those tabulating the offerings.  It is NOT necessary to put your name, since identification can be make by envelope number, but it is most helpful to have the amount written on the outside of the envelope.  Thanks for your cooperation.


Vacation Bible School - It is that time of year to start planning for Vacation Bible School.  If there is anyone who would be interested in directing or co-directing the Vacation Bible School this year please contact Marty or  Sharon Duncan at 229-0076.
