PICK UP PANARA BREAD from the East Cobb Avenue every Wednesday night and deliver it to Ray Thomas Food Pantry at 9:30 on Thursday morning.  If you have an hour a month (30 minutes on Wednesday and 30 minutes on Thursday) consider volunteering for this worthwhile cause. Contact Leslie Michael at LSM4570@Bellsouth.net  if you would like to volunteer or need additional info.

EASTMINSTER’S EGG HUNT: March 24 immediately after the 11:15 service. The hunt will take place beside the playground.
