Easter Week Connection

After last Sunday’s  wonderful Resurrection service, we hope you enjoyed a blessed week!   Here are some things to keep in mind over the next several days.

This first item we want to mention is Cindy Rudolph’s gallery show on Saturday.   Cindy is a very talented artist and we are blessed to have her share her gift with us here in a variety of ways.  You are welcome to come by anytime between 1-4 pm at WinSmith Mill Marketplace, 61 Endicott Street in Norwood.  The entrance is under the huge flag.  There is a parking lot available.  I think it is to the left of the building.    Live music by Steve Rudolph.  Hope that you are able to set side some time and come by!

Sunday morning worship begins at 10:00. Great music, encouraging message from Pastor Kevin and an important time of bringing our praises and concerns for prayer.  This is a Communion Sunday.  Our Helping Hands offering will also be received.  Look for the special envelope in your bulletin if you typically participate in this.  Kids Connection meets and Meg has dedicated volunteers helping out.  Coffee time follows in the fellowship hall.

I want to remind you that prior to worship, you are encouraged to meet in the church parlor for prayer.  Yuniya Simms is the go-to person for this time.  You are welcome to come and go as necessary.    Prayer is a vital part of our lives both individually and as a church family.  Please try and be here as you are able for this important time.  Your heart will be well-prepared for worship at 10:00!

This Sunday is your last opportunity to contribute to our special Easter offering.  Envelopes are still available on the Resource Tables.  Funds can be designated to either church needs or Michelle Hughes for her trip to China.  Please make note on the memo line.

A few needs to consider…

One person has signed up to bring a snack to share for Sunday coffee.   We need a few more items.  If you can pick up something when you are doing your shopping or bake something and bring it with you on Sunday, that would be appreciated.

At our prayer & praise time on Sunday mornings, we currently have 2 people that write down the concerns that are mentioned by the congregation.  We need 2 more people to do this.  Preferably that are sitting in different parts of the sanctuary!  It is difficult to hear sometimes and we don’t want to miss someone’s comments.  This is very simple, just write down the requests that you hear and then give your list to Barbara Sweeny or myself.  We’ll take it from there…thanks.

Special thanks to Meg Nelson, Amy and Sydney Lebow who spent last Saturday afternoon here preparing the cross for Resurrection Sunday.  It looked beautiful!   As one email stated “the decorations fit the wood of the cross and the glory of the day.”  Thank you!

A word of thanks also goes to our WISH group that made beautiful Easter baskets for our homebound friends.  Those were delivered the week before Easter.

Young Life meets on Monday evening at 7:27 on the top floor.  All high school teens are welcome!  Speak with Meg if you have any questions.

Large print Daily Bread devotionals are available on the Resource Table in the Welcome Center.
