Blooming flowers are a big part of our celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Lilies, azaleas, and hydrangeas don’t speak or sing, but they proclaim the eruption of new life with bursts of color, lovely shapes, and sweet fragrance. To contribute to our floral Easter proclamation this year with the purchase of lilies or other flowering plants, use this form. Forms will also be available in worship this Sunday and next. The names of donors and those honored or remembered with their gifts will be listed in the bulletin on Easter.
Food delivery volunteers
Society of St. Andrew is partnering with Urban Green Lab and some elementary schools in Nashville to glean excess food from their cafeterias. They are looking for volunteers to go to these schools, pick up the food, and deliver it to a third partner agency, likely the Nashville Food Project.
Would you be interested in this type of urban gleaning? You would have to be available Fridays, early afternoon. Society of St. Andrew and Urban Green Lab are looking to start as soon as possible, but would be glad to discuss starting with the new school year in August. To volunteer or ask for more details contact Jeannie Hunter.
Luke's volume 2
Our Wednesday morning Bible study will begin a new 10-week series on April 24, the Wednesday after Easter. The group just finished studying the gospel of Luke and will continue with the book of Acts, using the Interpretation study guide as a resource. They are looking at meeting at a different location after the summer, but for this series they will continue to meet on Wednesday mornings at 7:30, in a meeting room at 40 Burton Hills Boulevard, suite 420. If you are curious about this group, talk to Jack Wallace, Charlie Biter, Carol Doidge, Lydia Grubb, Larry Adams, Linda Edwards, or Thomas Kleinert. The series on Acts starts on April 24, so you have a few days to think and talk about it!

Work on the parking lot in the back of the church is progressing. The gravel strip at the bottom of the picture is a new road connecting Montgomery Bell Avenue and Vine Court. The little islands of soil will be planted with trees and shrubs. Work is scheduled to be completed in May.
