April 2:      Outreach Meeting: If you're interested in

Pastor's Fund 

We'll be collecting change this Sunday. This month's proceeds go to Feed My Starving Children, where we'll be serving on Saturday, May 20. Mark your calendars now! Kids as young as 5 are welcome. When people pack food, the agency asks for a donation to help cover the cost of packing. Please be generous this month!


We will be hosting IHELP Saturday. If you signed up to bring food please have it here by 5:45 pm. You should have received an email reminder Thursday. If you didn't sign up but would like to come, just bring some food with you. Set up begins at 5:30 pm. Our guests arrive at 6:00 pm.

Egg Hunt 

On April 2 and April 9, we'll be collecting candy and small toys to stuff Easter eggs with. We appreciate if you skip the chocolate since it melts in between hiding and finding. Contact Angie Hepworth with questions. 

Easter Sunday Schedule 

7:30 a.m.   Sunlit service in the front courtyard
8:30 a.m.   Continental breakfast (We might start a
                  little later than this, but we won't start
9:15 a.m.  Easter Egg Hunt for Kids (We might
                 start a little later than this, too, but we
                 won't start earlier.)
10 a.m. Regular Worship Service 

Sanctuary Changes 

When you arrive at church on Sunday, April 9, the sanctuary should be arranged quite differently! We'll be in a hall style facing north instead of in the round facing west. We'll likely have a couple transitional hiccups, but we're excited about this way we're growing. 

General Assembly 

The General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is happening this summer, July 8-12, in Indianapolis. Several Chalice folks are attending! You're invited, too. More information can be found on the website, and early bird registration wraps up soon. 

Church Camp

Church camp is June 5-10 at Camp Pinerock in Prescott. Kids who have finished grades 3 through 12 are invited to attend. The cost is $325 for Early Bird Registration (April 21st). Chalice will cover half the cost of camp if registration is returned to the Chalice office by April 19. Click here to download your registration forms or pick on up at church. Talk to Rev. Abby if you need more information; she's also counseling camp!

Lent Prayer Stations 

Each Sunday in Lent, a prayer station will be set up in the front courtyard near the baptistry. You're invited to come a few minutes early or stay a few minutes late to pray and reflect. 

Leadership Council & Finance Meeting 

This month's finance meeting will be a joint leadership council meeting. We are especially interested in discussing the new sign (yes, it should be here soon!), changes in worship layout, and leasing land to the Kenyan congregation. If you're interested in any of those topics, plan to attend on Monday, April 10 at 6:30 pm.
