The Flowers Today are in loving memory of Grace Searle McMurtry from her family.

The Sharing BasketYou will see a white basket under the front stairs marked The Sharing Basket. As an outreach effort we collect items for the third Sunday of each month to supply some of the needs at North End Community Ministry and St. Matthews Maryland Community Ministry, according to their wish lists, which are posted in the AMEN corner. We will now include our own Winnipeg Harvest depot , which has requested our help specifically , to augment the supply of feminine hygiene products and, currently, diapers sizes 2 and 5. Thank you for your generous help. The next Sunday is September 18th to donate as you are able.

BANNER SUNDAY: You will see the “wondrous set of banners” (wondrous because they keep people wondering) now hanging above the choir loft.

Sunday, September 25th bring your ideas to share, and also enthusiasm to celebrate a new banner!
