If you have not participated in this ministry before and would like your memorial included, you will find a form on the ministry table. Please fill it out and drop it in the plate or the office. We are all richly blessed by special music, banners, bells, brass and more. Deadline to turn in your form is March 24. Your adornment will appear in the Easter bulletin.
