Pot Luck Lunch:  Pot luck lunch today after the service.  Help is needed with clean up.  Thank you.

Easter Flowers: Cheryle Russell is away for an extended winter break. Therefore, she is unable to organize the Easter flowers. Cheryle spoke to a couple of people about this and the consensus is: anyone wishing to place a flower or plant in memory of a loved could purchase one for Easter Sunday Service.

Planning is underway for a Sunday service to welcome new members.  Anyone who might be interested in joining Haliburton United Church is asked to contact Rev. Harry Morgan for more information.

Stewardship and Mission Offering:  The extra monthly Mission for April is HASP (Haliburton Assistance for Single Parents).  We thank you for your support and ask that you mark your envelope when giving to this extra mission.  Take note of the Stewardship and Mission bulletin board in the foyer.  Information will be posted as it becomes available.
