PENTECOST SPECIAL OFFERING – The Pentecost Offering supports a broad range of programs that work to nurture young people. It supports youth programs in your our own church, creates opportunities for young adults to learn to serve others around the world, and helps build a foundation of faith. The offering provides opportunities for our young people to forge deep-rooted connections to God and to the church.
40% of your donations go to Cottonwood’s Youth Programs!!!
Pentecost Offering can be placed in the red envelopes located in the pew racks. If giving by check, write Pentecost in the memo section.
PICTORIAL DIRECTORY!!! – It has been 5 years since Cottonwood’s last directory!! PLEASE help us out by getting your picture taken for our new pictorial directory. Pictures are being taken in the choir room directly after worship service. The choir room is located through the door at that southeast corner of the sanctuary. No appointment needed – just come to the choir room after worship. It only takes a few minutes! Cottonwood member, Ron Hunter is a great photographer and has done a fantastic job taking our photos. We would like to have as many member’s pictures as possible. If you have any questions or need help finding the choir room, please find Randy Urbom after worship service.
FLOWERS FOR WORSHIP – To purchase flowers for Sunday Worship Service, please sign up on the flower chart in Fellowship Hall or contact Nancy Hildebrand at 801-266-0201 or Adele Ta’afua at 801-755-4764. After worship you can take your flowers with you to use at home. The cost is $15.00 for a flower arrangement.
SUNDAY MORNING POWERPOINT - Help is needed with operating PowerPoint on Sunday mornings during worship service. If you are available and willing to help, please call the church office.
HELP NEEDED!!! The rain has been a wonderful blessing with greenery everywhere. However along with the blossoms, green grass, and beautiful flowers those nasty old weeds are part of the landscape. The gardens in the front ofthe church are in need of much attention. Unfortunately nothing was done in the gardens on Cargo day due to the rain. The tulips and daffodils have been cut back to a few inches and now is time to weed and rake the leaves. No one needs gardening skills just the desire to get the garden ready for planting. If you have an hour in your morning, daytime or evening to rake and pull weeds, it would be most appreciated. JUST DO IT! Please call Patat 801-571-6530or Judy at801-943-0141with any questions.
