Notes Help children by helping teachers —and get in the Easter spirit! Beginning March 17th, watch for tables in the narthex set with baskets filled with Easter eggs. These are very special eggs — each one contains a gift that Williams Elementary teachers to benefit their students. No fancy computers or the latest “apps!” These gifts are humble, basic items such as whiteboard markers, copy paper, Kleenex, and granola bars. [If you’re curious about our KIDS HOPE and Williams, visit ] Pick an egg, bring a gift, and pray for a teacher. Gift items are requested to be back at church on or before Easter, March 31st.
