News
• Easter: Make plans now to join us for Easter Sunday, March 27, and bring a friend. The Sunrise Service will begin at 8 a.m. in the UCC Courtyard followed by a free pancake breadfast at 9 a.m. in the MAC. We will have our normal worship service at 10 a.m. in the auditorium before an Easter Egg Hunt at 11 a.m. across the street in front of Sewell Auditorium.

• Sunrise Service: Several of our sisters and brothers will be participating in the special annual tradition that is our Sunrise Service on Sunday, March 27. If you want to submit names of family or friends who have passed away since last Easter, please contact the UCC office before Thursday. We read these names aloud in a time of remembrance during our Sunrise worship.

• Easter Eggs: Please bring Easter Eggs with wrapped candy inside for our Easter Egg Hunt. Baskets are located by the Welcome Center. Anyone participating needs to bring a dozen eggs filled for each child.

• The annual Missions Special Contribution was last Sunday, and we are thankful we have reached our goal of $47,000. If you have not had the chance to give, you can still do so. Either bring your contribution by the church office, or drop it in the collection plate on Sunday, earmarked Missions Special Collection. Thank you so much for all who helped us reach our goal!

• Cross+Walks: On March Wednesdays (including March 16 and March 23), we will begin a new ministry called Cross+Walks, a new series of neighborhood outreaches of simple opportunities to walk our surrounding streets, learn more about the Hill, pray for those in the shadow of our building and being forming relationships with our neighbors. In other words, a chance to put our faith and talk into action. Please be praying for this ministry.

Wednesday Night Supper will NOT meet this week due to Spring Break.

UCC Ladies: Mark you calendars for Saturday, March 26 from 9 a.m. to noon for a ladies’ breakfast with the bilingual ministry called “Florenciendo para Dios” or “Blooming for God.” Lynette Austin will be the speaker, and the event is free.

Camp Signups: Camp signups are happening right now:
LCU Encounter
  – Camp Blue Haven


• The new ministry for 20-somethings and young professionals is going to be called The Gathering. The class will meet at 9 a.m. in MAC 504. Please encourage anyone you know who falls into that category to check and see what this new ministry is about.
