April 21 Weekly Connection

Hello everyone, What a beautiful day God has given us today!  Please take time to read through this weekly connection and make note of the things that pertain to you.

Games Galore Family Fun Night begins at 6:30 this evening in our fellowship hall!  Meg has planned a variety of FUN activities for this school vacation week.  Bring a snack or soft drink to share 🙂

The Women’s Book Study meets Saturday morning at 9:00 in the Ruth Room across from the office.  We will be looking at Chapters 7 & 8.  For the Chapter 7 discussion please prepare a purpose statement.  When you read the chapter you will see why this is a good idea!  Chapter 8  “Worry Is Like a Rocking Chair” also promises to yield a lively discussion.  Bring your coffee along with you.

Sunday morning worship begins at 10:00.  Great music and message, time of praise and prayer concerns are all part of our service.  It has been great to see new faces – make sure you are welcoming!  Coffee time follows worship  – this is a good opportunity to get to know visitors a bit better.  Kids Connection  happens during worship with dedicated volunteers to work with your kids.

Speaking of Sunday worship…did you hear Pastor Kevin mention last week that our Praise Team is looking for your favorite “old hymns” to include in ourservice? If you have one in mind, please speak to Rachel (I think!) and let her know and watch to see it included in the service in the coming weeks.

Council members are reminded of the meeting on Monday evening at 7:00 in the Ruth Room.

Did you place your prayer reminders someplace where you see them?  Don’t forget!  We have 3 specific areas we are praying for: pray for our church and the ministries that help us to share Christ; pray for Michelle and her trip to China; pray for Kevin, our Compassion child who has not been located following the earthquakes in Ecuador.  Saw this and thought I’d share…”We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.”  Oswald Chambers

Faith Seeds lessons are available in the church office – ladies, please pick them up there.  Also any women that would like to be involved in this ministry, please speak to me.

Sunday evening is the first Meetinghouse concert of the season at Victory Church in Sharon.  The Freedom Quartet will be singing.  The evening begins at 6:oo and tickets are available at the door. A wonderful evening of great music!

New members will be welcomed on Pentecost Sunday, May 15th.  Please see Pastor Kevin.
