++  This Sunday, March 20, after the second service we will have an opportunity to meet with 2 financial experts from the ELCA and Synod Endowment Board. Beth Adams, from the ELCA, and Bonny Groshound, from the synod endowment board will be here to talk with the board and finance committee members about strategies to wisely manage and invest the money from the combination of Asbury and ORLC. Anyone from the congregation who is interested is welcome to attend.  Bonnie can also offer information about grants that are available from the synod. The meeting will be from 11:45am -1 pm.

Please let me know if you will be attending so I can have a light lunch available for you.  If you are on the board or finance committee also please let me know if you are unable to attend.                                Debby Chenoweth

++ We are using  Ecopalms for Palm Sunday again this year! 

Why a “Fair Trade” Palm?

Gatherers will receive a higher price for their “fair trade” palms improving their income and living conditions. “Fair trade” helps protect the palms and  the important forests from which they are gathered through sustainable harvest programs.
