Chalice Project

May 2015

The congregation decorated chalices that had printed on card stock.  On the reverse side they were invited to write what communion means to them.  Some adorn the piano in the Parish House while others hang in a mobile in the Fellowship Hall.

Using small pieces of scrapbook paper we were invited to write an Easter memory or what Easter means to us.  These pieces were joined, with sparkly papers inserted between, and hung in the sanctuary for several weeks during the Easter season.
