End of March Connection

Hello! Hope you are looking forward to a restful weekend after a busy week.   Plan to include church in your weekend plans!  Please keep these things in mind over the coming days and weeks.

Saturday morning at 9:30 is the next Women’s Book Study meeting.  Gather in the Ruth Room across from the office.  Please read Chapter 4 in your book in preparation.

Sunday morning worship begins at 10:00.  Looking forward to seeing many of you at that time!  Last Sunday we were treated to wonderful, uplifting and sacred music from our choir and a special guest trumpet player.  What a blessing!  A special word of thanks to Steve for his leadership in the choir!    Sunday worship is a great jumping off point for the week ahead.  Please  be here as we spend time together in prayer, praise, music and hear an encouraging message from Pastor Kevin.  Kids Connection and Nursery are both in place for the little ones.  Coffee time follows in Veno Hall.  We will be looking for you 🙂

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

Young Life also meets on Monday evening at 7:27.  Meg has been posting some great videos of Young Life fun times from Monday’s get-togethers!  Check with Meg on how you can see those.

Thank you to those who have dropped off grocery gift cards in the past few weeks.  This is an ongoing need.  If you are interested in helping out with this, $25.00 gift cards to Shaws or Big Y are appreciated.


Young Life Capernaum is Young Life’s ministry to teens with disabilities, and it will be sponsoring its annual Talent Night here at the church Saturday April 8th. The goal is to raise money for the camp scholarship fund for teens with disabilities and their high school peer mentors/buddies to go to summer camp in Virginia. Tickets are $5.  If you or someone you know might be interested in sponsoring the event through an advertisement in the event program, contact Meg Nelson at faithfulmeg@yahoo.com by March 26th.  There’s quarter page ads starting at $25, half page ads at $50, and full page ads for $100.   This is a fun night where our typical Young Life High School teens, Capernaum teens, Wyld Life Middle Schoolers, and Young Life leaders all come together for a great celebration, it would be great to see our church well represented as a host location!

Did you hear the news?  Did you get the word?  We will be sponsoring an Easter Sunrise Service on Easter morning (April 16th) at 6:30 right across from the church on the Norwood Common!  If you have never been to a Sunrise Service, you want to plan now on being there.  No need to get all dressed up in your Easter best!  Roll out of bed and come and share in this special time as we celebrate the empty tomb.  And to make it even better, we will be having breakfast here at the church!  Hot coffee, pancakes, eggs and I’m pretty sure bacon may be on the menu!  Yippee!    These activities don’t happen magically though – we need your help to make this a successful outreach to our community.  We will also need help with serving breakfast and with clean-up.   The ladies from WISH have volunteered to get the tables set, the day before.  THANK YOU!  Here is the time frame.  Sunrise Service at 6:30am; Breakfast begins at the church at about 7:15; Clean-up begins at about 8:15.  This leaves plenty of time to still be here for Easter Celebration worship at 10:00.  This is all going to be publicized in a variety of ways BUT the best publicity is you!  Mention this to your friends, people you work with or run into at the store.  Word of mouth is the best advertisement.  Look for the sign-up sheet  in the coming weeks.  I will leave it on the table in the narthex as you come into the sanctuary.  You can also contact the office if you have any questions or want to volunteer to help out.  THANK YOU!

We are looking forward to hosting the Southern Gospel Concerts this year!  The “go-to” spot for information will be the bulletin board in the Welcome Center.  The first concert is not until Sunday, April 23rd.  Concerts are at 6:00pm.  Tickets are available at the door and are also able to be purchased ahead of time.  Watch the bulletin board for details.

Look for an insert in next Sunday’s bulletin regarding Easter flowers for the sanctuary.
