Check out the new paper towels, toilet tissue, and soap dispensers in the Office restrooms!  We are doing a free trial with Clean Products and so we want your opinion so we can decide if we want to switch over the entire church, try something else, or stick with what we have now.

Sign up to be a Sunday Greeter!  Greeters for the front door on November 24th and in December are needed.  Sign up in the office, on the clipboard, on the counter, next to the Flower Calendar book.

Flowers for the Altar have many openings!  If youhave an event or person that you want to honor or memorialize with flowers just sign up in the book on the counter in the office, next to the greeter clipboard.  You will also find the name and phone number of the florist we use in the front.  If you have any questions, ask Janine. 

Do you sing?  Play an instrument?  Have a trio, quartet, or other musical group you perform with?  Then we are looking for you!  Pastor Bau would like to continue having Special Music year round, so if you or someone you know would like to provide music for our Worship service please contact Janine Ryder, exp@ggumc.net or 714-534-1070.
