BLESSING OF BASKETS: Please bring your basket up to the front of the church and give to Preoteasa Stephanie. If they are extremely heavy, please place on the floor where she directs you. They will be blessed following the service. Do NOT take them down to the hall. If you do not plan on eating out of your basket at the Agape Meal, please return it to the car. We need as much room as possible on table area for eating. Thank you.

SAFETY REMINDER: Many of our services involve the use of open flame candles. Even though the candles have cups to help collect wax drippings, it is not perfect. We ask everyone to please be mindful of not dripping hot candle wax in the sanctuary. Thank you.
