Mother’s Day Corsages

The Outreach Committee is selling Mother’s Day Corsages to honor those in our church family who give so much. Show your mom, wife, grandmother, or friend how much you love her this Mother’s Day by giving her a beautiful corsage. Corsages are $10 and all the money raised will help purchase prayer books requested by Pastor Paul for our men and women in the armed forces and children’s books requested by the National Youth Gathering Committee to help equip the schools in Houston affected by the recent hurricanes. Order forms are located here or in the church entryway.

Volunteers are also needed to help assemble the corsages on Saturday morning May 12. No creative or crafting expertise is necessary. All supplies and tasks will be provided. If you would like to help with the assembly please let our Outreach Coordinator, Kristin Brenneman, know.
