We will observe Maundy Thursday with a meal in remembrance of the Last Supper. The service will explain the meaning of some of the elements typical of a Seder meal and will conclude with communion. A potluck dessert will be part of the meal. There is a sign-up sheet available, so those who are preparing the meal will know how many to plan for. The deadline for signing up is Sunday, March 25.
Easter Lilies…If you would like to provide a Lily to decorate the sanctuary on Easter Sunday, please have them to the church by Friday, March 30. If you would like to dedicate your Lily in Honor of, or In Memory Of, a loved one, please let Susan know by Noon, Friday March 30, for inclusion in the Easter bulletin. Susan can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the church office at 360.249.3845.
As has been our tradition here at Monte Pres, a Flower Cross will be set outside the sanctuary, Easter Morning. Please bring a Flower stem (or more) to add to the Cross as you arrive for worship.

****Men’s Breakfast…This Men’s Ministry has been started to help primarily single women of our church and/or our community, who have projects that need to be done. The men have pledged to spend three hours of service following the breakfast, dividing into teams depending on the number of projects on hand. All men of the church, as well as their sons, are invited to join this new ministry. The next scheduled meeting will be Saturday, April 7, 8:00a, here at the church. Please contact Jay if you would like additional information
