News for the Church, 5/19/23

Good Day to you Church!

This week I’m participating in the Festival of Homiletics (a preacher’s conference), so today’s newsletter is going to be short and to the point. 

Here’s the news for the week: 

No Bible Study this Saturday

Diamante is still recovering from surgery, so we will pick back up with Bible Study next week.

Jeff Mitchell to Preach this Sunday 

Come gather with our community this week and hear a word from Jeff Mitchell. 

Collecting Donations to Send the Knitter’s Box of Baby Items to Malawi

The Knitting group has done it again! They have enough baby sweaters, hats, and blankets to fill a box to send to the Crisis Nursery in Malawi. The box will cost $170-$200 to send. If you have a few extra dollars you could contribute to this cause it would be much appreciated. Just write Baby Box for Malawi on the memo line of your check. 

Need an Organizer for Church Grounds Clean Up

Bob Pickard won’t be here this year to organize a clean up day of the church yard. Might you be willing to set the date and gather the people together to do it? If so, let me know! The weeds are starting to grow and we need to get to them. (If you have any questions, Bob is willing to explain what he does.)

Session Meeting Next Wednesday 

For those who attend, we will be meeting via zoom on the 24th at 6:30pm. 

Community Supper Set for Next Thursday 

A reminder to those involved, our next community supper will be held at our church on Thursday, May 25th. 

Picnic Party Fun on June 25th 

Don’t forget that we will be heading out to the Lazy River for a potluck picnic party after church on June 25th. More details will be forthcoming. 

Prayers This Week 

Friends, please keep our church folks in your prayers this week– especially Diamante Maya who is recovering from surgery, Joanne Hubbard, and our professors who are in the midst of grading this week! 

May you know the blessings of love, joy, peace, and hope this week dear Hearts!
