Big, beautiful Boston ferns in 10-inch hanging baskets are on sale for only $15 each. Order your fern today to support the annual Easter Season Sale by the Missions Committee. Please place your order form, along with your payment, in the offering plate or at the Church office. Easter Sunday is April 16, and we ask that you please leave the ferns in the sanctuary until after our 11 am service. To avoid any confusion, please keep in mind that ferns purchased “in honor of” someone should have one designated person to pick up that fern. Please make sure that your designated person knows to pick up the fern you ordered. The last date to order will be April 10. Forms are in the bulletin today and will be available in the Transept, the Welcome Center, and the Church office. For more info, contact Louise Jensen at Trussville First.

Thank you to the Consignment Sale Team for your generous donation to our debt reduction and general fund!
Thank you to our United Methodist Men, Sunday School Classes, Small Groups and individual members for your help with special projects involving our Church and Grounds.
