Pre-Pentecost Weekly Connection

Hello everyone, It appears that Spring has found us!  Hope you find some time to get out and enjoy the sun. Here are some things to be aware of for the next days:

We received a second update from Michelle this week.  Everything is in order and she is leaving Monday for China.  Please be in prayer for her as she takes this long flight – arriving on Wednesday.  Be sure and pick up a copy of her update on the table in the narthex.

Sunday is Pentecost Sunday!   Plan now on being here!  We have been talking about this for several weeks now.  Everyone is welcome to join others in the church parlor and spend some time prayer prior to the worship service which begins at 10:00.   Worship will be an encouraging and uplifting time – great music, prayers, message from Pastor Kevin and our United Quartet will be singing.  Kids Connection is also happening and there will be a special family rally  in honor of Pentecost following worship in the Kids classroom.  It’s going to be a great day – be here!

A few weeks ago Meg gave the suggestion of a “homework” assignment, encouraging everyone in this season of praying for the church to pray for someone they might want to invite to join them at church on Pentecost Sunday.  It’s coming up, so please keep your family, friends, and neighbors in your prayers as you pray for our church, and consider taking the step of inviting them to join you!

Coffee time follows worship – I noticed that we do not have anyone signed up for set-up.  If someone can come a bit early on Sunday morning and take care of that – it would be appreciated.  We have volunteers for treats and clean-up.

Council members are reminded of Monday’s meeting at 7:00 in the Ruth Room across from the office.

Young Life also meets Monday evening, 7:27 on the top floor for all high schoolers.

WISH Gathering for women of all ages is Saturday morning, May 21st at 9:00.  We have a special project we will be working on and also hear from Deb Bayha and Sam Riley about the skincare products they are involved with.  We will also be hearing  some of our ladies “stories.”  It will be a wonderful morning that you don’t want to miss!  Coffee and treat of course 🙂

Ice Cream Social:  Kids Connection will be hosting a “Sundae Sunday” Ice cream social Sunday May 22 at 3pm at the church.  It will be a fun time of ice cream, games, and crafts!

Many thanks to everyone who supported the WISH Bake Sale last Sunday!  There was a huge variety of delicious baked goods and we are happy to support our church with the proceeds received.  Thank you!
