This Week @ GIPC

General Announcements

Parlayed Posies is a ministry of sharing donated flowers with shut ins, developed by Leigh Krauss. Leigh reuses flowers left at funeral homes by putting them in small vases and delivering them to nursing home residents. You may help Leigh in this endeavor by contributing your unneeded small vases and bud vases. Put your unwanted receptacles to good reuse by leaving them in the boxes in the cloakrooms. Leigh is collecting vases until June 15.
