Congratulations! To Moses Vani (Eastern Florida State College), Libby LaFave (Bayside High School), and Tim Fox (Melbourne High School) on your graduations! We will recognize all three graduates at the 5:00pm Service this evening.
Special Projects 2016: We are excited about this year’s biggest “Pay As You Go” special project…to replace the carpet in the Parish Hall and Welcome Center with a safer, and more welcoming wood-looking laminate tile. We have budgeted a cost of $2.50 per square foot (an estimated total of $6,250.00). Our goal is to finish in time for Bishop Greg’s visit on October 2. Donations can be made using the Special Projects envelopes in the Pew—and/or by clicking on the Donate Button on the Church website. Thank you!
