A chart is located in Crafts Hall for those wishing to provide flowers for the Lord’s Table on a given Sunday.

Five Means of Grace: Experience God’s Love the Wesleyan Way
Based on The Wesley Covenant for Renewal, Five Means of Grace is a six-week, video-based study that will show you how to reorder your life through prayer, searching Scripture, receiving the Lord’s Supper, fasting, and conferencing and worshiping together. You’ll learn how to recognize and affirm the outward signs, words, and actions of an invisible divine grace, deepening your relationship with God and making your faith more complete. All are invited to enter into this experience of growth in faith as we begin 2018. If possible, a contribution of $16 is suggested to cover the cost of the class resources and study book.
