COTM Community Yard Sale - The Fellowship Committee would like to start actively planning a community yard sale event at COTM. Funds raised will benefit the Capital Campaign. Ideally this will be a large event and so we will need participation of several members of COTM for the planning of this event.

Altar Flowers – Altar Flowers will begin again on April 8th. The sign- up sheet will be available in the Narthex beginning next week. Just a reminder, if you sign-up for 1 flower it is $35.00 and 2 flowers are $70.00. All checks are to be made out to COTM and in the MEMO section of the check, please write ALTAR FLOWERS. You can mail your check to the church or place it in the offertory basket on Sundays. Thank you for supporting the Altar Flower Ministry!
