EASTER FLOWERS - This year the flowers are Lilies and Hydrangeas. Cost is $7.00 for Lilies, $12.00 for 4-bloom Hydrangeas. The Hydrangeas come in pink, blue or white. NO ORDERS for lilies will be taken after Februaury 12th .
Due to heavy rains that fell in northern California and Oregon this past fall, there is a significant shortage of Easter Lilies this year. To make sure we receive the Easter Lilies you want, we are asking you to let us know by this Monday, February 12th so they can be reserved. DEADLINE FOR HYDRANGEA ORDERS IS MARCH 16, 2018. NO ORDERS for Hydrangeas will be taken after March 16th .
FAREWELL TO ALLELUIA - At the end this past weekend's worship service celebrating the Transfiguration of Our Lord, we sang the hymn "Alleluia, Song of Gladness." This hymn tells the story of why we remove Alleluia from our Lenten praises, including an eleventh century text which compares Alleluia’s absence to the
Israelites’ grief during the Babylonian exile. The song also tells of the longing for joyous Easter when glad Alleluia will return. Today, we carry on the tradition. During the singing of Alleluia, Song of Gladness, the
children may come forward and place their Alleluias in the box. They will remain in the box until Easter.
HUNGER CENTER VOLUNTEERS - The Parma Hunger Center is in need of volunteers to help perform various duties, such as unload and sorting food, break down cardboard boxes, pickup food from local grocery stores, etc. If you are interested, please contact the Church Office at 216-351-6376.
