Thank you to all worship volunteers during Holy Week and Easter Worship Service that helped make Easter a special season. If you decorated / painted / cleaned the church, made a joyful noise, purchased a lily, passed out a bulletin, welcomed someone you didn’t know, was a part of the service, donated to those less fortunate, visited someone housebound, filled in for someone on vacation – “Thank You!” Special thanks go to: Excelsior Bell Choir and director, Rosemary Rumbold; Praise Singers and leader, Lucinda Bellairs; our pianist – Alex Wolf; our liturgist – Steve Laidlaw; Video Tech – Fred Nelson; Head Usher – John Leitch; and Trustee Co-chairs – Tony Rizzo & Michelle Wood; You are all a Christ-like blessing for others!

Thank you to Joanne Bogus, Lucinda Bellairs and Laura Clancy for their work updating the library/cry room! Located just outside the sanctuary, this area has undergone some spring cleaning – and has a new name: Library/ Baby/Quiet room! Many books were removed from the crowded bookshelves and after many of us took the books we would like, the remaining books were dropped off to both Addison Public Library and the Oxford Public Library. Thank you Trustees for painting the room – it looks great!

The room is available during Sunday service and may assist a young family with toddlers or fussy children. There is a speaker in the room so service can be heard. The room can also be used as a quiet nook for thinking and praying. One shelf holds many OUMC historical items along with church photo books. Come and take a look – you may just want to stay a while!
