From March 25 through 27, come to the church Sanctuary entrance to pick up Palms for you and family members to use during the livestream of the Palm Sunday service. At the same time, drop off a donation for Christ House in DC, which is often in urgent need of food. (See below for suggested items)
Bring your donations and pick up Palms outside the Sanctuary door at these times on these days:
- Thursday, March 25 – 5:00-8:00 p.m.
- Friday, March 26 – 12:00-2:00 p.m.
- Saturday March 27 – 9:00-11:00 a.m.
Volunteers will remove the filled boxes of donations at the end of each donation time and deliver the items to Christ House at the conclusion of the food drive. It is okay if you want to come get a palm and don’t have an item to donate! We hope many in the congregation can celebrate Palm Sunday by waving Palms during the service.
And don’t forget, we need volunteers to help plant succulents for LRR residents on Saturday morning, March 27 from 10:00-11:30 am. Combine trips and pick up Palms, donate food, and plant plants for LRR! Details HERE
