Multi-Generational Valentine's Day Outreach - On February 4th, the Sunday school program will be hosting a multi-generational outreach activity. The children will meet in Williams Hall at 9:30 am to make Valentine's Day cards for the children of Weisman Rehabilitation Hospital and for home bound parishioners. Everyone is welcome to come and participate alongside the children. We will also be collecting novelty gift items appropriate for boys or girls 6 months to 17 years of age. Ideas include new books and magazines, hand held games, playing cards, activity and coloring books, small stuffed toys, and personal gift items. Please refrain from bringing edible treats as they cannot be accepted by the hospital due to various medical conditions that are present. A bin will be in the narthex and also in the hall by the Sunday school classrooms starting January 14th through February 4th. We are also in need of one or two large baskets. The baskets will be delivered by Monday, February 5th. For any questions, please feel free to contact Kelly Wu at 856-979-9447.

Coffee Hour Volunteers Needed! The sign-up sheet is in the narthex. Any questions, please contact Beverly Scollay. Thank you.

It's time to bring in your blessed palms. Beginning this weekend, a marked box will be in the narthex to receive your blessed palms saved from previous years. We will be collecting palms until Sunday, February 11, after which they will be burned to ash for use on Ash Wednesday. Thank you.

It's Flip Flop Sunday and WEAR YOUR EPIPHANY/ EAGLES GREEN! This is a reminder that this Sunday we will have the Family Eucharist in the Chapel at 9:00 AM followed by Sunday School at about 10:00 AM. Everyone is welcome, but it's designed for children in grade six and under. PLUS it's Epiphany and everyone knows that it's a green season on the church calendar, but do they know that green is also the color for the Eagles. Show your Epiphany/Eagles pride and wear green to church this week! Rite 13 and J2A will meet in their respective rooms at the usual time of 9:00 AM. We look forward to seeing you at 9:00 AM in the Chapel.
