JIM WARD, after accumulating more than 1300 volunteer hours since 2007, was named Volunteer of the Year at Duke Raleigh Hospital. Jim is a "Care Ambassador," which means he delivers newspapers and flowers to all the patients, helps them and their visitors navigate the complicated hospital campus, and even sings "Happy Birthday" to them if they happen to be hospitalized on their special day. Congratulations to Jim on this well-deserved honor!

WORSHIP

FLOWERING THE CROSS-Please bring flowers or tree blossoms to place on the cross in the circle drive on Easter Sunday. As we cover the cross with signs of life, we symbolize the life that conquers death through the Resurrected One.

Thank Ms. Lisa Baker from Church for me. The cards were sweet and the gifts were very useful. My guys raided the packages and were glad for everything, especially the itunes gift cards...way too generous.

Love, Drew
