The Lenten Project

This year our ambitious goal (we can do it, but only with God’s help) was to

collect donations from the congregation to benefit the Lake Highlands Family Crisis Center

located in Marble Falls that serves a four-county area including Blanco County.

Our total offerings to date are $1139.59 from free will donations, two noisy offerings,

and the bake sale. Our anonymous donor will give us $1000 and the

Bishop’s Committee will give us $1400, to make a grand total of $3539.59.

Thank you to all who gave so generously to this excellent project.

Many hill country families will be helped through the use of these funds.

The Spring Rummage Sale = Saturday, May 6 = has been cancelled.

The ECW voted at its April meeting to cancel the spring rummage sale

because we do not have enough donations to make a sale worth holding.

We will have our fall rummage sale in October as usual. This will give us more time to gather donations.

Altar Service

If you are considering volunteering in one or more of the altar service roles,

please email Hunter Wistrand at wistrand@gvtc.com to let him know of your interest.

A bit of training will be needed and Hunter can arrange that for you.

Altar service is another way to deepen your spiritual commitment to the

church and to gain new insights into the meaning of the Eucharist.
