The sacrament of the Lord’s Supper will be administered during worship June 4th and taken to shut-ins following worship.
Our Summer Study’s theme is “12 Ordinary Men” (Jesus Calls the Apostles). We will meet on July 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st and August 7th . Mark your calendars for those days. We will begin as usual with a light supper, then a bit of singing and divide into classes for Bible Study and crafts for the kids plus related games and activities. We will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. with closing at 7:30. It is sure to be a great time of faith, fellowship, and fun, so invite someone to come with you! A more detailed schedule and other information will be posted next month.
After worship April 30th we acknowledged a significant life event for Wally & Mary Bunton as we gathered to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of their marriage April 1, 1967, when they were serving in the Peace Corps in Africa. It was quite a feat to make it a “surprise”, since both are so invested in the work and worship of this church. Cake and punch was served to the many who came to congratulate this outstanding couple.
The Mother’s Day spaghetti luncheon after worship May 14th honoring the mother’s in our midst was a truly blessed event. Thanks to the helping hands that prepared food in advance, the children and some dads were able to have everything fresh, hot’n ready to go as soon as church was over. The kids did a superb job of serving and the mothers didn’t have to lift a finger. Of course, everyone else enjoyed an abundance of this great feast as well.
Fathers will be honored on June 18th with a special breakfast at 9:00 a.m. A variety of breakfast items will be offered and served to the men of the congregation. Of course, everyone is urged to attend, honor the fathers, and eat and fellowship with them.
Raul, Caitlyn & Christopher Galicia, examined and received for membership by the session April 20th, were presented before the congregation making a public profession of faith during worship April 30th and graciously welcomed. These young people also received the sacrament of baptism administered by Pastor Esther that day. We are greatly blessed to have them with us.
