Hey, look at all this cool information right in front of me! Everything from “Who We Are, What We Believe” to current music brochures. I am here to tell you today, my friends, only a select number of seats would fulfil a visitor’s curiosity, and I took a pic to prove it! Volunteers are needed to stuff welcome/information packets, then stuff the pews, dang it, chairs! Please contact Diane in the church office, 206.622.4865 or djacobsen@PlymouthChurchSeattle.org. Easter is just around the corner; let’s pack this place with people AND welcome cards and offering envelopes!
