Riverview Photo Book Riverview Estates is celebrating 50 years of ministry in 2014! To celebrate they are putting together a new photo-book for their community, but they need OUR help to make it a success. On May 10, from 10AM to 5PM, Riverview is looking for volunteers to help check people in for their sittings. The job is easy, and the benefit for Riverview is HUGE. So please, sign up for an hour or two – and bring a friend to be your partner!

In addition, you may reserve a slot for your OWN sitting!  You’ll be able to say if you want your picture to appear in the book or not, but either way you will receive a photo (with the option to order a package, of course).  If Riverview registers 200 sittings, their photo-book becomes hard-bound.

Easter Pulpit Flowers Special Thanks to those who ordered spring flowers for this year’s Easter Sunday Service. Please feel free to take your flowers at the conclusion of the service.
