Ticket holders will have their choice of attending one of the following dates:  April 30, May 6 or May 7. Look for the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board.


ALERT! Flower orders are due today as they will be ordered tomorrow for delivery prior to Mother’s Day, and can be picked up from the church on the Saturday before Mother’s Day. If you have not yet ordered, please check the table in the Narthex for an order blank. Thank you.

(Proceeds will help fund the Scholarship fund for ladies attending the National LWML convention at New Mexico in June.)


Please note: our last midweek class will be on May 3.


Wednesday morning Bible study resumes May 3– We are exploring the book of Jeremiah. This major prophet laments the destruction of the temple, the siege on Jerusalem, and the people’s being led away as captives into exile.  Yet he also predicts the coming age of the new covenant under the Righteous Branch, who will be the Good Shepherd. Please read chapters 41-44 for this week’s session. We meet from 10:30-11:30 am in the fellowship hall.


Team Members Needed– The Board of Evangelism is currently looking for people who would be interested in joining our board. Adults and youth are welcome to serve. We meet once a month on the first Monday of the month. More importantly, we are looking for someone willing to step up to be the vice-chair for the 2017-18 year. If you are interested, please contact Charles Ellis. Please give this position some prayerful thought. Thanks, The Evangelism Board
