5/21: PCA Day of Prayer
In 2023, the Presbyterian Church in America celebrates its 50th year as a denomination. Join us on this Sunday, May 21st, as we celebrate God’s faithfulness and pray for the Church’s future.

Plant Care Volunteers Needed!
We are seeking a few Plant Care volunteers to be put on rotation throughout the Summer & Fall while Annie Libby is away. This will require about one hour/week. The tasks are to water the living plants in the Sanctuary and the six flower boxes by our front door and tend to the flowers at our road sign, as well as weed and prune as needed. You'll be making Annie happy, adding beauty to God's House, and sustaining our plant investments! (Rewards tri-fold with time expenditure minimal!) Call Annie at 352-409-7099 or sign up in the Narthex if you're interested.
